Brookfield Zoo staff found a surprise on Wednesday: a blue snow goose.
Staff photographer Jim Schulz captured views of the blue goose, a subspecies of the snow goose. It was seen by several staff.
The thing that struck me is how it looked like some farm geese I have seen.
Wild of the Week, a celebration of wild scenes and doings around Chicago outdoors, runs on the Sun-Times outdoors page on Sundays, as warranted.
As the fall and winter come, I also mix in Buck of the Week: Unplugged, the celebration of live big bucks around Chicago outdoors, on Sundays.
There are a multitude of ways to send nominations of WOTW or BOTW: Unplugged: on Facebook (Dale Bowman), Twitter (@BowmanOutside) or email (firstname.lastname@example.org).
