It's certainly plausible, but to me... they have huge butts. They look like farm geese or escaped domestics. Were there any houses within walking distance?

Definately neat to walk up on.

There werent any homes that i could see, but they definitely look like farm/domestics, they were hanging out with a group of mallards. Cool either way! Wish i had a decent camera...

You might be seeing some weird domestic x wild hybrids in that area this fall. ;-)

that was definitely my thinking too, just didn't know if they went all white when they had molted.
