Cape Barren Goose

I’d not seen any of these close up before, but at Serendip Sanctuary there are quite a few there. They even have a breeding area.  During one walk-in area there was a mother with its goslings, very cute. And in a more open area with wetlands there were several there, with one having a heated discussion with a Masked Lapwing Plover.  I love how the goose showed off its size and height.

The Cape Barren Goose is a large goose resident in southern Australia. The species is named for Cape Barren Island, where specimens were first sighted by European explorers.
