Went to the Sedgewick County Park today to feed the ducks and geese. There is one pond in particular that all these fowl visit, probably because people feed them and it’s become habitual. There are the usual mallards, a wood duck or two, a colony of coots, a swarm of shovelers, lots of Canada geese, and all these tall, loud, pushy geese from the genus Anser and whatnot. The goose in this picture is an Embden goose, a domestic European breed. They can get up to 30 lbs!
I am going to include a color photo though because, despite being a loud, pushy, intimidating bird, this goose has beautiful blue eyes!
