The variety of snow goose that Frith brings to Rayander is a white-morph. They are white with black on the tips of their wings. They measure 19" in length, with a wingspan of 58-59". Their feet and legs are pink, as is their bill. Black patches along the edge of the bill give the appearance of a grin.

They breed in the Arctic and then migrate to lower parts of North America. They are very vocal and can often be heard from more than a mile away.
