“One of these things... !” For the past few years our native and non migratory Canada Goose population has been joined by a solitary Snow Goose. It arrives around Hallowe’en and stays till spring when the oddfellow joins the rest of its kind and flys North. It is regularly seen flying by with the rest of its friends but this time came floating by for a photo op. This white goose is a Lesser Snow Goose some say Anser caerulescens spp caerulescens (according to Wikipedia) or others say Chen c. ssp caerulescens.

The snow goose , also known as the blue goose, is a North American species of goose. Its name derives from the typically white plumage. The genus of this bird is disputed. The American Ornithologists' Union and BirdLife International place this species and the other "white geese" in the ''Chen'' genus, while other authorities follow the traditional treatment of placing these species in the "gray goose" genus ''Anser''.
