Dear Bob and Tweeters,
A white domesticated goose appeared to have migrated with Canada Geese in Skagit County from spring of 2009 to fall of 2013. I would see this one goose in various places, both downriver and upriver, during fall, spring, and winter of those years, but never in summer. The bird would always appear in a flock of Canada Geese.
I know those sightings weren't in your area, but it was such an interesting and fun phenomenon while it lasted!
Yours truly,

What I forgot to ask has anyone else had a pair of geese like mine in the area?
