"Blue Goose"

Chen caerulescens


Dark morph of the Snow Goose, commonly called a Blue Goose. Once considered a separate species.


Spotted on the campus pond at University of Massachusetts, Amherst. I've seen the common light form Snow Goose there several times, but this is the first time I've sighted a Blue Goose.
