Snow Geese

As I mentioned in a previous blog, now Autumn is here, the geese are arriving each evening in the nearby field.

Amongst all of the Canada geese, which noisily swoop in, are two Snow geese.

Snow geese are smaller than Canada geese and come in two colours. These are the white version with black wing feathers.

These two are almost certainly feral rather than truly wild.

    Ross’s Geese generally have a smaller bill, so I’d still lean towards Snow Goose.

    The much smaller size + stubby bill makes me think they might be Ross’s Geese.
