Not sure what kind of goose this is? Can anyone help?
Pond near an outlet mall, Ohio.
The Brown Chinese Goose is a breed of Domestic Geese, not a separate species. So you may find different looking breeds of domestic geese that derive from the A. cygnoides. I believe the official binomial name for domestic geese is Anser anser domesticus & Anser cygnoidesSee more here:http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Domesticate...
Hmm. Two suggestions with the same species name but different common names.
