Spur-winged Goose

Plectropterus gambensis


The Spur-winged Goose is a large bird in the family Anatidae, related to the geese and the shelducks, but distinct from both of these in a number of anatomical features, and therefore treated in its own subfamily, the Plectropterinae. It occurs in wetlands throughout sub-Saharan Africa. - Wikipedia


Spotted at Ngorongoro Crater in Tanzania.
