Today my wife called me to let me know that there was a white
goose in a large flock of Cackling Geese at the Steigerwald Lake NWR in
Clark County. When I checked it out the bird was a leucistic CACKLING
GOOSE with a pure white body and a neck and head of a lovely rusty brown
color. I photographed the bird and will compare the photos to a similar
bird that was here last year. A second Cackling Goose with white wings
was in the flock, we did not see it fly so I can't say whether it was
only the primaries or the complete wings that where white.
