Magpie Geese happy to be big heads

Lots of big knobs at Orient Station these days. Magpie Goose (Anseranas semipalmata) males are all big heads. 


Maybe the conk on top comes from having a bird family all their own. Makes them feel special. That, and the hooked bill, and part-webbed feet.

Plenty of healthy green feed, lots of company (800 on these reeds yesterday), and any number of females without big heads.

Could life be any better?
