Leucistic Pied Canada Goose!

Leucistic Pied Canada Goose!

Last week I was out shopping and swung by my local bank. There in the lawn was a small group of geese (Canada Goose) which I stopped to admire. Then I noticed one had an unusual neck! I tried to take pictures with my cell phone but those didn't come out very well. I rushed home to get my "good" camera. When I returned, they were still there! (Whew!) These are a few of the pictures I took.


This is leucistic pied Canada goose. This is a form of albinism.

EXCITING STUFF!
