Albino geese?

Motoring along on a fine crisp morning up Scenic Vermont Route 5, northbound between Rockingham and Springfield, Vermont, Official Home of the Simpsons, this observer was astounded to see, in a flock of wild geese rising over the Connecticut River from the edge of the cornfield, two brilliantly white individuals among the dark - flying together in the middle of the flock as plain as day. They were headed away, and too quickly for the trusty Sony A100 dslr to wake up and take an impression, so I slowed the RoadMaster Estate Wagon to concentrate on live observation and decided that indeed, whether they were ducks or geese, I had seen among this wild flock two white flyers, likely a rare pair of escapees from some place where they would not be so free to wheel about on a sharp first morning of Spring. So, who says that there's no fun in Vermont?!
