Blue-morph Snow Goose. Just about any Canada you should be seeing out that way would be much bigger than the Snows -- they're just a bit bigger than a Cackler. Also it looks like there's a good deal of white on the neck.

They are on the move!  Snow Goose was a new yard bird for us just a couple days ago (there were some mixed in with the Canadas), then yesterday we saw the first large Snow Goose flock to fly over our yard.  What a fantastic sight!!

The typical large flocks made it here to NJ about 2 weeks ago... those guys are just the stragglers! :lol:

I'm going to miss the massive snow goose migration in Illinois. Lots of cool birds where I live now, but there's just something magical about going to a location and seeing a couple hundred thousand in a day :) Along with all the other waterfowl of course. If anyone is bumming around central Illinois come late January/early February and wants to see tons of ducks and geese I recommend going to check out Emiquon NWR and Chautauqua NWR near Havana.
