Domestic Goose X Canada Goose – Sadly, a hybrid between a Canada Goose and some sort of domestic farm goose species is the most likely combination to find in the Northeast. In general, these hybrids resemble a large Canada Goose with a pot belly, saggy rear, and orange legs. They typically show face and bill characteristics of farm geese – with orange bills and fleshy knobs on their foreheads. Domestic X Canada hybrids are highly variable though, and some could resemble Greater White-fronted or Snow X Canada hybrids. Also beware of Canada Geese with plumage abnormalities like partial albinism, etc.
Snow X Canada Goose – These hybrid combinations are typically smaller, similar in size to a Snow Goose and often show very intermediate traits between the two species. Compared to similar-looking domestic X Canada hybrids their body’s are more naturally-proportioned, and they have Snow Goose-like faces and bills. More info here.
Snow X Ross’s Goose – This hybrid combination is fairly common in large Snow Goose flocks. These are just what they would seem – a nice mixture of Snow and Ross’s Goose traits on an intermediately-sized goose. This combination is highly variable, but show a thin Snow Goose-like grin patch and otherwise display the small, cute factor of a Ross’s Goose. Check out these examples below, and make sure to try and photograph any hybrids you come across. More info here.
