African Geese

Or they look like African geese as I had a pair take up residence in my pasture
These can fly I didn't think that kind was supposed too.

Africans can fly. At least they aren;t as noisey as chinese geese. Embden and Touloose don;t fly very well if at all.

they prefer to be called just "Geese" labeling them does nothing but create stereotypes

Well they can boogie pretty good.
Opened the door and they were in the front yard, my Jack Russell saw monsters. They took off and flew over 1/4 mile to the pond and set down.
