Just Look At This Fucking Awesome Goose

Seriously.  Just look at it.  There are three of these at Horicon Marsh right now.  Just chilling, posing for the birders who park alongside Highway 49 to get a gander at them (see what I did there).

When I saw it I had no idea what it was.  Then it dawned on me it was probably some sort of Canada Goose variant based on the bill and some of the coloration.  Some folks on the Internet have pegged it as a hybrid between a Canada Goose and a Chinese/Swan Goose.
