Domesticated Swan Goose (Anser cygnoides domesticus)

Origin: North America
Sighted at: Texas Farmer’s Market at Mueller, Austin, TX

Another Sunday, another visit to the market! This time I got to meet one of the many geese that swim in the lake adjacent to the market. 

This breed of goose is descended from the wild species of Swan Goose – you can identify a Domesticated Swan Goose by its prominent bill knob!
