Nice spot Liam!!
No, not fully Snow Goose, but a Snow x Canada Goose hybrid. I have heard of many very similar individuals and this is definitely one. Note the heavy brown body and dark thin neck of a Canada Goose, but the white head, ragged neck feathers, and grin patch of the Snow Goose.

Thanks for the id and I hope he is still flying high somewhere.
Great job! I wish anglers would be more responsible - I used to pick up all sorts of potentially harmful trash from around the lake I used to walk round in my lunch breaks in England during fishing season - lengths of line, empty beer cans, styrofoam containers, plastic bags.....
So you rescued the bird... Great work..!!
No egg just a tennis ball that flew past the courts.
I'm guessing a Snow Goose
This one had fishing line wrapped around his knee joint, I was able to remove some of it but he flew away. Pictures were to help the park service help him further. Sweet bird!
Is I am see Egg below Bird's abdomen in second picture...?
Earlier I saw just last picture...Cute one in first...Karen, Cindy and Nance will tell better than me..!!
looks like a snow goose morphing from the blue/grey to the white! maybe the Lesser Snow Goose Chen caerulescens??
