One more...I'm so used by now to seeing Canada Geese, that coming across this goose
(exploring the water's shore right alongside heron and cormorant) caught me off guard.
Also, is this a domestic or wild goose? (taken in East Providence, RI; August 24)


Thanks, Joe

This is a domestic goose, you can tell by how heavy it is. I'm sure Liam will be along before long to tell you which breed.

All Yellow Warblers are yellow warblers, but not all yellow warblers are Yellow Warblers

Not sure if I can call the breed from this distance. I can't make out any details. I do agree with domestic goose, though.
