Piebald Canada Goose

I spotted one at Walt Whitman H.S. on 12/ 21/19 with a flock of Canada Geese. I took a video of it.

I am actually not sure. I have only recently started hiking there. I imagine there will be some similarities. It doesn't have beaches but it has freshwater ponds and marshes.

Maybe I'll see this Goose on one of my hiking trips! Heckscher isn't that far. I only saw normal colored geese on my trip to Connetquot State Park on Friday.
