ID (Germany, Bavaria) - Geese with partly strange colours (1 Viewer)


Well-known member
Hello, everyone,

today I have seen two geese with partly strange colours (in my opinion) The geese were seen in Bavaria near the Danube. Can you tell me if the geese are hybrids or "off-coloured"?

Goose 1: Seen together with Greylag geese. White-fronted goose?
Goose 2: Spotted together with Canada geese. Barnacle goose?

Thanks a lot!
