    It looks like a blue morph snow goose. here’s the link:

    or I could be an immature snow goose, Or a rare version of a Canada goose.

  2. Micah Grove says:

    Could be ether Pied Canada Goose or Blue Morph Snow Goose. Was the bird the same size as the other geese or was it smaller?
    If it was smaller then it was a Snow Goose.
    The start of the white is very clear im thinking its a Canada Goose. Also where the Canada Geese neck turns black on this one it turns white.
    Never mind this is a Canada Goose because it has a black bill.

    Yeah, I looked it up again, and I think it is just a hybrid Canada Goose.

    Hi all, This bird may have leucism, which is a form of albinism – in other words, an abnormality in the way pigment is expressed in the feathers, usually showing white patches. You can learn more about it here.

    That’s what I thought Holly.

    I took a picture of either an albino or nearly albino Canadian goose here in Baja California Sur. Is this normal?

    Just to let you know 3 years later and that goose is still around. I took a picture of it today and found this site when I googled it.
