I would like to discuss the following trail cam image:


image 4025443, mosaic 55
center left, image of bird in flight (species information said you hadn't found an image to use yet as an example .. so here you are!) .. doesn't appear to be a lesser snow goose either.

(also an empty nest at the top I think)

I will do some digging into exactly what flight this was to see if I can confirm the species, but it might actually be a blue - phase snow goose by looking at it without the zoom capabilities in the post.

.. but it might actually be a blue - phase snow goose ..

fyi ..the reason I thought it was not a snow goose was that the head was not white, thinking that part of the goose would not change color so much in differing conditions.
