Snow Geese in Markham

These four adult Snow Goose were present in a stormwater pond at the edge of a new housing development in northeast Markham. Nearby, an adult Ross's Goose was with Canada Geese in a field close to Reesor Pond. As a waterfowl sceptic, I wonder if these birds are all of wild origin.

Also present was this adult dark phase Snow Goose.
