I saw a blue morph Snow Goose yesterday among other white and blue morph individuals near Normal, IL that at first glance had me thinking Emperor Goose! Got me pretty excited for a couple minutes [😉]

Hi all,

That's a blue morph Snow Goose. They're currently passing through Illinois right now on their way north.

I'm probably wrong, but that looks a bit like a very out of place
Black-bellied whistling duck! In all likelihood it's domestic, but if it's
a Black-bellied Whistling Duck, that's amazing. Those are a semitropical
duck on the Gulf Coast!

Hello -

We saw this bird this morning 7:33 AM North of Montrose (about half way
between the Mexican restaurant and the dog beach). Unable to identify. Help

Thanks -
