Not a goose!
by: Anonymous

Geese have web feet from the beginning and also a 'duck' bill. So it's not a goose! But I have no idea what it is either. So I'll vote for Amy's Sandhill Crane.

Maybe a Newborn Sandhill Crane?
by: Amy

I can't tell from the pictures how long it's neck is. It's butt looks like the tail of a Sandhill Crane and they also have very long legs. Maybe search the internet for newborn sandhill cranes. I hope this helps. When you find out exactly what it is, please post the information because I'd like to know for sure! :) Thanks for sharing.

goose family
by: Anonymous

I was curious as of what species this bird could be and I did some research on line, I was thinking maybe it was a Canada Goose or in the goose family. I don't know when they develop the web feet or if they are born with them. I am only speculating.
