Blindly foraging for food through dense Duckweed. This pair were also in the Rookery area of Flamingo Gardens; they are Domestic Swan Geese (Anser cygnoides). Confusion in a name?! They have the body of geese yet I suppose they could like Swan-ish? Maybe. Copyright 2018 Pamela Breitberg

Pair of Domestic Swan Geese in the Rookery’s thick Duckweed. I am unsure if perhaps the whiteish one is a hybrid. See this link for more information: https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Swan_goose#Description . Copyright 2018 Pamela Breitberg
