    Wish I had a better camera with me instead of just a smartphone.

    north east of the twin cities there are a population of tan colored giant canada's......people think they have a trophy when they shoot one,but in reality they are result of wild canada's ,and some pen raised canada's that crossed with a well known bird breeders tame buff geese......he had several running around his place and they still must be carrying the genes as they keep popping up even though he moved and took his birds with him.

    I have buff goose x Canada hybrids and they have proven to be sterile so far. Healthy and hardy yes, but not able to breed.

    The goose in the photo is the wrong color to be a buff hybrid. 'Hard to say without a better shot, but it could very well be a silver dilute Canada goose.

    yup the buff x cans are more tan with a dull chin patch dont know about them being sterile or not but the offspring from them hang out with the wild birds and seem to fly just as well so they will probably die out soon
