This is a very unique goose and it is very interesting to read about it on wiki.  What immediately caught my attention was the fact that I saw them sitting in trees. Never seen a goose in a tree before.

  7. This is a really handsome goose ... the coloring is amazing and though they look like a goose, they don't seem to be like them. The male being larger, the gradual molt ... and they can sit in trees becasue their feet are only partially webbed. What a great find, Monica ...

  8. Nice photos of the Magpie Geese and their habitat. They are down this way - sometimes - but I only rarely see them.

  12. We have magpie geese here. The other day I got them flying past and landing in trees. Actually I recall the first time I saw them in a tree, bit strange really but it is probably safer than the ground in some places.
