MAGPIE GOOSE Anseranus semipalmata


Family listers should note that this ugly bird represents a monotypic family, all other ducks, geese and swans are in the family Anatidae. It is readily seen on a visit to Australia, where large flocks are the norm, paricularly in northern areas. All the photos here were taken in Queensland.
