Out Of the Blue

Yesterday I spotted this unusual looking bird which I believed to be a Snow Goose (Blue Morph) or Dark Morph in Mississauga, Ontario. I have never seen one before. However, with the help of a good flickr friend we think its a Greylag/Canada Goose hybrid. From afar I thought it was an Eider Duck but this one finally swam to shore and I got some closer shots of it before it swam away....I wish the light had been better...I think this bird is better looking than that of a Canada Goose ;)...It seemed quite happy swimming with the flock of Canada Geese that were there.

 

Have a great day everyone!!
