    So my ducks apparently invited company for dinner tonight.
    I apologize for the quality of the picture.
    I took it from inside the house so as not to spook her.

    Ideas on breed of this visitor?

    WOW!!!
    I think you're right!
    We've had snow geese visit before but they were all white.
    Last time snow geese passed through we got snow within 24 hours!
    OH NO!!! LOL

    Guess we will see!
    I was shocked how he/she came up and had dinner with the ducks just like it was nothing!

    They are beautiful birds I used to breed them. It's odd that it was the only one that stopped, I would of figured a couple at least

    Only one I saw.
    He came up to eat with my pekins as if he was just part of the family!
    I was shocked!

    He was hanging near the Canada geese that are passing through.
    I suppose he will move on with them, but he was a welcome visitor!

    How nice for you, maybe it lost it's mate or maybe it hasn't got one yet but I'd say geese are pairing up now since breeding season is starting up. She/he may as well stick around in Ga it's mighty frigid the further north ya go.
