Chinese Goose/ Camera Critters




Chinese goose - wild or domestic?

Last weekend, this Chinese goose was hanging out at a yacht club with a flock of Canada geese. When I approached the flock, all the Canada geese slipped into the frigid water to eat and swim. This was the only goose who stayed on land. I couldn't decide whether the goose was actually part of the flock or simply an onlooker like me. For sure, it wasn't carrying a camera.

That's pretty neat! I don't think I've ever seen a Chinese Goose before! Well, if I did, I didn't know it.

That's cool EG! I wonder if it stays with the Canadian Geese flock? I wonder if it can fly? See what your pictures do? Make me wonder! Good photo.

What a nice photo of the goose. Guess it feels it can't go wrong hanging out with the other geese that probably know all the best feeding spots.

Maybe the Chinese goose just thought the water was too cold~
