WHO THIS ON MY LAKE??? A SECOND SNOW GOOSE SHOWED UP!! (MORE pics)

post #1 of 57
Thread Starter 

I looked out on the lake to check on my Pekin boys, ( I have two males) and we have a THIRD white duck on the lake!

I think it's female (no drake feather).
She's smaller than the Pekins with a more slender neck like a mallard, white all over except for black v shape on her booty, and her bill is yellowish orange and looks like it has a little black on the bottow side. (not as bright orange as the pekin's bill)

They are swimming around on the other side of the lake so I can't get a good picture right now.  I'll try later.
Any idea on what kind of duck she might be??
White Mallard maybe??

I wonder where she came from??

In one picture you can see her with one of my boys, so this may give you some size comparison.
Also, once I got a better look at her, the black is actually on the tips of her wings not on her booty.

Any idea what kind of duck this is??

I hope she likes it here and sticks around!

That's not a duck!  That's a goose!  Look at the bill on your ducks compared to that pointy thing.  I think it's a snow goose.

True, though, I think it's a goose, too.

lau Yep, you've been goosed!

Don't get all your exercise leaping to conclusions!
