Yep, I can't believe I forgot to tell you guys:

We bagged a banded Canada Goose about a week ago and as a bonus I found a tiny piece of blue sea glass in the gizzard.

That was definitely a first for me, pretty stoked! I'd bet lots of $$ that it will be the last time, too.

Sometimes someone up there just smiles on me for no reason!

Here's a pic of the geese...I didn't take a pic of the glass cause my hands & shoes were all wet from cleaning it outside with the hose, but I will post a pic later.

What is blue sea glass ? Is it worth $ ?

Yep, can be valuable (lots sold on e-bay for big $$), but a small piece is worth hardly any $$ at all...it's more of a "bonus trophy" to me.

Here's a good article on it:

I know it doesn't look like much, but I'll bet it's much, much rarer than a banded goose, let alone a banded goose WITH a piece of blue sea glass in it!
