Description

This bird was a strange case. It had been brought here injured, rehabilitated and released. But it kept flying back to visit the rescue station! So whether it was free-flying or captive is hard to determine.

There were two Snow Geese, and one Ross's Goose, at this location for about a month. My pictures show them in somewhat uncooperative poses, but still distinguishable to species.
