A late batch of Snow Geese included one Ross's Goose, a lifer for me. This photo also has a juvenile dark morph Snow Goose for good measure.

One of the challenges of fall birding: find a Ross' Goose in amongst Snow Geese while being buffeted by 50km/h winds. Finally succeeded today, and in review of the photo there were actually 3. Taken at Saint-Jean-sur-Richelieu, Quebec. This was a lifer.

St. Albert -Left to right: Lesser Snow Goose x Ross's Goose, Greater Snow Goose, Ross's Goose.

Tough one this. Could only ID from photos. In the field unclear. Thought we had two Ross's Geese at first then thought only one but one was a hybrid. Left bird has a stubbier bill than a Lesser but larger than Ross's, is a larger bird than Ross's but smaller than Lesser by a bit. Bill also has no grin patch, like a Ross's bill.

Chesterville - I didn't notice this bird with the Snow Goose until I was reviewing the shots (cropped from a larger flock). That's often what happens when there are plenty of Greater Snow Geese around.
