Goose, Snow @Bosque del Apache
Goose, Ross' @Bosque del Apache
Description: The photos show all the classic field marks in close comparison to a Snow Goose. The Ross's is a little over half the size; it has no black 'grinning patch' at the gape; and the bill is shorter, with a khaki-colored triangular feature.

When I asked a refuge biologist how to find Bald Eagles, he replied, “Find the biggest Snow Goose flock and watch to see when they panic. They subsist largely on those geese in the winter.” The photo shows a goose carcass that was attended today by three Bald Eagles.
