A WHITE GOOSE AMONGST US

This morning it was overcast and I got rained on a little so the photo-ops were few. The first thing I noticed was we’re getting a new “Main Street”. Well not new but resurfaced. It looked like the prep was done and the new black-toping will begin today.

Out on Ebey Prairie I saw that the squash have all been cut and turned in preparation for harvesting. It looks like it will be a bumper crop this year.

In a field next to the squash I spotted a flock of Canada Geese but something unusual caught my eye. A “White Canadian Goose” amongst them.

I zoomed in to make sure and while the photo isn’t very good, due to low light, it’s definitely a “White Canadian Goose”.

Back in Coupeville on the wharf I see the rental kayak’s are stacked for the winter. Just one more sign that fall is in full swing and winter is on the way.

  1. I believe the White Goose is an adult Ross’s Goose. Markings are correct for it . White body, Short bill, round head, black feathers on top of tail , can’t see leg color. I saw a Greater White Fronted goose here in Alabama in January 2013 mixed in with a large group of Canada Geese.
    Best, Mike
