Well, after further consideration by some of my expert witness birder
friends, it is NOT a Ross's, but a Lesser Snow Goose. My apologies! But
still welcome to drive by!

Subject: [TN-Bird] Ross's goose
The ponds have filled up from the rains this week, and the birds have come!
There is a Ross's goose hanging with about a dozen Canada Geese on the front
pond of our property, as well as Ring Neck and Mallards. There is also an
unusual hybrid mallard male in with the other mallards.
Birders are welcome to come by and see. Please stay on the gravel drive if
you need to pull off road because it is VERY wet here. The bird is visible
at this time from the road.
2725 Stephens Rd, Maryville.
