The pictures are blurry so we are having trouble determining what kind of bird we are seeing. there were 4 or 5 Canada Geese swimming in the middle of Lake Manawa in Council Bluffs, Iowa on Saturday, December 5th. These geese were on their own away from the 1,000 other geese that were on the shore of the lake. The pictures show that there is a smaller goose swimming with these Canada Geese. Any ideas what kind of goose it is?
I had at first thought this might be a leucistic Canada Goose since it was hanging with some, but someone else pointed out that it was a Snow Goose. That looks right to me at this point. It was not in a location where I would have expected to see a Snow Goose and it was not in a large flock so I got confused, at least that;s my excuse and I am sticking with it! :) Delta Ponds, Eugene OR, 4/10/2020
