Ross’s Goose


(Anser rossii - formerly Chen rossii)

Although often seen together with its similarly white but larger cousin, the Snow Goose, Ross’s has a smaller, rounder head, and a smaller, stubbier bill. Although a preponderance of individuals are white, both species also occur in a less abundant blue morph, as well as intermediate forms.
