    Default Albino Canada Goose!

    Snapped a few pics of this goose yesterday feeding in a cornfield near work.

    Did a little more checking and that is probably a Toulouse goose. Which is a domestic breed it may have it's flight wings.

    Cool Pic. What you have there is a picture of a leucistic canada goose.

    I'd say it's a dead goose if it flies into anyone's decoy spread.

    Looks like the same goose.

    Domestic/canada cross...aka barnyard breeder.

    Sure looks like a honker to me. Everything matches up perfect from what I can see. The size, the black neck where it meets the chest, the darker top flank wing feathers, even the white butt patch lines up with the goose in front of it. IMHO, its to perfect.

    Here's two pics I found while searching the web for leucistic canada geese. Not disagreeing with any of the above posts just wanted to show a pic of a couple. I did notice that the beak and feet of this one are black instead of the orange that appears on the one were discussing. It's a awesome pic regardless of what it is!!!

    They all look like silhouettes to me.
    You're only allowed three great women in your lifetime. They come along like the great fighters, every ten years. Rocky Marciano. Sugar Ray Robinson. Joe Louis. Sometimes you get 'em all at once. Me? I had my three when I was 16. That happens. What are you gonna do?

    Bunch of barnyard geese. Always wanted to blast one. Heard one guy shot one and got it mounted. Wasn't even a cross. Just a barnyad goose. Lol I can only imagine how ugly that mount would be. Ha

    I bet it still tastes like a goose, no matter what it is.

    Great looking picture. But you are mistaken about the white goose.
