Snow goose

On the lawn outside of Walmart, along a somewhat busy street, a flock of Canada geese raised their young and made their meals. In the spring I saw the goslings debut, and watched them get a little bigger everyday. Sometimes they even held up traffic as they crossed from one green patch to another. 

When I drove by the other day I saw a grey goose with the flock and I wondered if he had always been with them, or if he was only passing through. I went back today and he was there alone. After some researching, I realized he may be a young snow goose. Born in the Arctic tundra, heading south for the winter.
