While at the Jordan Lake Dam this morning, a large white bird appeared in with a few gulls that were flying above the Haw River. I believe it to be a Snow Goose. However, it is possible that it is a Ross’s Goose. Both birds are rare in this part of NC (there are thousands of snow geese around Lake Mattamuskeet this time of the year). Both birds also readily hybridize with each other. I didn’t get quite good enough photos to clearly see the beak on this goose and that could have helped with the identification. Enjoy this winter-white visitor!
