I am hoping for help identifying a goose I saw on January 27, 2002 and today
March 24, 2002 at the Montlake Fill. It is about the size of a Canada Goose
but with a thicker neck. It is all over whitish but not stark white.. Pink
bill with a black tip. Face had a plump roundish cheek that was whiter than
the face but just a bit. On January 27 I saw it walking around the Big Pond
with Canada Geese and it had pink legs! Today I did not see its legs. It was
swimming in the canal between the cat tails and the Lake and then it was
swimming in the Big Pond.
