832 Magpie Goose - Photography by Kevin McCue

This boldly attired black and white goose had been brought to extinction in southern Australia by Europeans farmers who shot and poisoned them. This one was out in the Tidbinbilla Nature Park wetlands, the knob on its head a measure of age, its feet also conspicuous by being only half-webbed.
