What goose is this?

A family friend out in Wisconsin took a pic of this goose. I'm not certain what it is...a blue in transition? Specklebelly? Hybrid? Domestic? Canadian with some type of albino pigmentation? It was hanging with a flock of Canadians I guess.

My brother, an avid goose hunter, says it's a Canada-domestic hybrid.

What you have here is called a Quill Lake canada goose,pretty rare in these parts...They migrate from the quill lake region of sasak through the dakotas. coloring varies on the face patch but shot a few in my day and body coloring is very unique.

I've seen a few "quill" geese when inlived in SD and would have to respectfully disagree it's got an orange beak that would suggest a wild/tame cross

Pigmentation will vary,not all have orange feet either,but whatever its a goose we can agree on that and would make a dandy wall mount.

Another pic of a quill with canadas,note the orange color bill compared to the canadas,I agree the feet and bill are usually black,but just like people we have a few odd balls.

Could it be an Canada/Greylag hybrid? Looking at some pictures online, it looks to fit the descriptions.

I've seen this before and have the answer. I worked at a restaurant in college called Antons in St.Cloud. They own Toulouse geese, which are let out right on the river along with many Canada geese. I have seen a couple hybrid looking geese, which looked like this one. Compare a Toulouse and Canada goose and let me know what you guys think.

With my vast knowledge/experience related to geese and goose hunting ,(more hearsay/wannabe) than anything! I'm gonna stick with Sherman. Just seems,visually anyway a bit closer to me. Interesting nonetheless,got some info and scouted around Lac Qui Parle last fall,hopes to give a whirl some November. Thanks
