"Blue Goose"

Chen caerulescens

Description:

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

Notes:

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.
