Anser anser domesticus
My original spotting of these birds was in August 2013 - http://www.projectnoah.org/spottings/364... What struck me as very unusual about this group was that it was almost exclusively male. There was only one female, but about 10 males. Is this common amongst geese species? I have only ever seen these birds in pairs. It was not long after sunrise and they were resting quietly, no doubt waiting for the anglers and fishing boats.
Spotted by the Manning River in Taree on the NSW mid-north coast.
