small goose
Description:

I see this little goose regularly on our local estuary. It seems to keep company with the wild mute swans. I think it might be a domestic breed that has escaped, but would like any help with identification.

Identifications
  • Goose (Anser)
    Confidence: I'm as sure as I can be.
  •  
    Likely ID
    Greylag Goose x Swan Goose (Anser anser x Anser cygnoides)
    Confidence: It's likely to be this, but I can't be certain.
