hybrid hawaiian geese?
« Gepost op: december 19, 2008, 10:27:07 am »

Found this accidentally , somebody selling hybrid geese said to be Branta hutchinsii x Anser anser....

http://www.kapaza.be/Dieren_en_toebehoren/...ar_te_koop.html


These look unusual to me-- what do you think  ? From the  small photos Id think they might be hawaiian goose x greylag?

maybe someone could ask for better resolution photos? (unfortunately my Dutch isnt good! sorry)

I think they are not hawaiian goose x greylag. I think the person who sells them is correct. He is by the way not saying it is hutchinsii. He says it's smaller canadian goose. Which could be some other subspecies as well. They have rather small bills, which might point to an even smaller subspecies.

OK, thanks for clarification...

i do not think they are necessarily Hawaiian x greylag.... His iD could well be correct... but what i think is strange is that the pale cheek area seems to go further down the neck??

Id really like to see bigger pictures of these...
