This morning at the little pond on Tracy Road, just past the village of South Hero, I saw two Canada Geese with at least three young. One of the adults appeared a bit bigger and longer-necked than the other and had complete light-colored rings around the eyes, white all down the front of its neck, and a mottled brown area between the bill and eyes. It also had some white on the tail, but I got just a very quick look at that. Any ideas? Hybridization with some domestic goose?
