Greetings Surfbirders,

Had a bird locally in Western MA (October 19th & 20th) showing a number of features which I'd associate with B. c. maxima - Giant Canada Goose. I got a few pics on Oct 20th;

I'd be curious to know if any readers would be coming into regular contact with maxima at the moment? And what they think to the id? I'm assuming that some would be difficult/impossible to tell from B. c. moffitti but that shouldn't be an issue here in MA where canadensis and interior are the common migrants.

Any thoughts/help would be much appreciated.

Best birding,
