Snow Geese (Chen caerulescens)

Winter residents at a local park, Pima County, Arizona.

 

The base of the bill of the lower bird, as well as other variations, manifest possible Ross's goose hybridization (per local experts).

 

Breeds north of the timberline in Greenland, Canada, Alaska, and northeastern tip of Siberia.
