Mother Goose…..I believe!

Mother Goose I believe..

This goose reminds me of my Mother Goose book that I grew up with as a child. Madison Audubon Society says these are “hybrid” geese from domestic White Fronted or Greyleg geese. Thanks Madison Audubon Society!

      Thanks, I think you maybe right, but from what I’ve read, there rare and domestic geese. Weird. It says the males are all white, so this group of three I saw had no white goose with it. I will definitely keep my eyes open for more.

    Joleen, I looked up in my bird book and I wonder if this is a “Greater White-Fronted Goose”. Check it out if you can!
    Great picture!!!!!

    I looked it up, but those are rare and not around here. Who knows, I’m going to keep looking. I’ll send a pic to the audobon society and see what answer I can get from them. Glad you liked the photo!
