  5. Interesting shape to the beak--- almost appears to be like a vulture. Maybe it's just the color. Loved hearing Janis this afternoon.

  7. Love them. The only magpie geese I have seen were curled up asleep and not about to stand up and have their photos taken.

  12. That's a very strange goose, indeed, Bob! It looks as if its head is half the size it should be.
