White Chinese Geese - Photographs

This is 4 of 7 posts of photographs I took at the Reservoir in Easton, CT on Aug 23, 2013.

The bird with the orange nasal knob is a White Chinese Goose, while the other bird, with the head bump, could be some other type of Goose. (Bird identification comments are welcome.)

These are domesticated birds that some irresponsible person abandoned at the Reservoir. This series of photos shows them in the vicinity of a small island, at the water's edge, then at the road edge. A "Goose Whisperer" was able to coax the "head bump" Goose close enough to be captured. The "orange nasal knob" Goose followed up to the guard rail, and was subsequently captured as well. A benevolent person who could provide a safer living environment took both Geese.

Update: 2013 Aug 28: The "head bump" goose is a Roman Tufted Goose, another domesticated bird.
