Wintering waterfowl were still present and I saw several new species and lifers. The Swan Goose (Anser cygnoides) is a familiar bird as it is often found as a feral introduced domesticated goose. It is IDed by the bicolored neck and black bill. You will notice that the wild populations do not have the big hump on the bill.
