Hi,
I got a note on our NWSCA Facebook page with two photos of a goose
flying over a big body of water with a seagull of some type. The post
person saw this on a birding post and asked me what I thought. All I know
at this point that the location is Manchester (no other info provided).
I think this is an albino white-fronted goose. The white area around the
bill, the pattern of pale color, the shape of the bird, the whitish belly.
And it looks like a 2012 posting of an albino white front in Germany.
You can view this at:

If you have trouble with the link let me know. I am curious about your
opinions.

Thanks
