Ross's Goose, or Snow x Ross's hybrid? Anderson Co, TN - 2023-11-28


Recommended Posts

A classic wintertime conundrum

This possible Ross's Goose was hanging around with a group of Snow Geese earlier today (2023-11-28) in Anderson Co, TN, and even though it seemed to have all the typical Ross's field marks (smaller bill, blueish grey bill base, straight edge of bill base, more rounded head), something was still putting me off calling it a pure Ross's with certainty

If it is a hybrid, it's definitely far on the Ross's end of the spectrum

Thanks in advance for any opinions!
