Assuming the bird is a wild goose and not a farm goose, I trust that everyone realizes that a white goose doesn't necessarily have to be a Snow. In western US, you will frequently see one or a pair of Ross's Geese spending the summer with farm ducks/geese at parks. Just a thought...

To help verify that it is a Snow Goose it would be good if someone would
ake some pictures of it.

ttendant told me there was a goose in a puddle at lakeside. Found a Snow Goose
looking ok but too calm. I sat on a bench to scan the breakwater (nearly
nderwater) and there it was, 6 feet away, in a puddle by the lawn. This is west
f the marina boats. Perhaps someone more knowledgeable could take a look. Goose
ppeared lethargic in the heat..but aren't we all. Linda McElvany - Williston
