The Parade Goes On

These are domestic geese which can be any color between completely gray (wild type) to completely white, but they are always big and blocky with a different bill shape. The two in the middle with the black bills are swan geese - native to eastern Eurasia and sometimes called a Chinese goose. A domestic swan goose usually has a large knob at the base of the bill (the wild form lacks this.) It also can show a white patch behind the bill. It varies from wild type coloring (mostly gray with a dark line down the back of the otherwise white neck) to pure white These guys live at the DD Ranch in Terrebonne.
