These geese


Just went out for a walk and saw these geese. One of them has a grey head - click on the pic if you want to spot him. I guess he is the man in the family - but am I right? Please let me know, you professional bird watchers out there, because I don't have a clue!

No clue about geese.
On a differnt subject. Have you thought about another island visit. How about Easter island?

I don't know anything about geese, either, but sometimes young birds will lose their darker feathers as they mature. Maybe he's still a bit of an adolescent? That's just my very uneducated guess!

Easter Island (Mike's suggestion) is a good one. I also just read a blurb about Pheasant Island. I don't know how much there is to the island, but apparently sovereignty switches every six months! It has some history, but I don't know if it has a population.

Sure looks odd whatever the circumstances.

Okay, Mike - let's hop on to Easter island as the next stage in my ongoing virtual island hopping tour! Please help me with finding information and getting in touch with people who have been there once or have direct contacts. I don't know a thing about this island yet, apart from the fact that there are these fantastic sculptures. Join me!

Yep. I am with you

Paul, clearly that goose is wearing the latest headgear from Viktor & Rolf. If you look carefully you will note yon goose (or is it gander?) is wearing yellow klompen.
