Anser anser domesticus
Ok great, thanks for your help with the ID!
I think they are all breeds of Anser anser, so I would keep them in the same spotting. Conventional taxonomy doesn't quite capture all the diversity introduced by animal husbandry... as far as species is concerned these are all considered the same.
Thanks Daniele, I thought that the first photo was the Emden goose but wasnt sure. Should I separate these into different spottings then? What do you think is in photo 4?
Hi staccyh! These look like various domestic geese descendant of the Greylag (Anser anser). The Emden goose in white, maybe a Roman tufted goose in the second pic.
Lat: -28.27, Long: 29.13
