I checked out the Veterans Park this morning in Milwaukee for the Blue Morph Snow Goose that was recently reported. It was present in a flock of about 20 Canada Geese. It did some preening and pulling out some old feathers while I was present. Thanks to Jennifer for finding and reporting this bird for others to see. A beautiful bird!
