And colour wasn't the only difference: The Ross's Goose was also dramatically smaller than the rest.
Ross's Goose breeds in the Arctic and passes over Saskatchewan on its migratory flight path to and from California and other spots in the southern U.S.
All About Birds says looks like a miniature Snow Goose. None of these were flying in the park for on-the-spot comparison, but the Ross's Goose was certainly far smaller than a Canada Goose!
