Description

Second image also shows a red-breasted goose (Branta ruficollis).

For the record, these birds were uncaged with wings unclipped, so not technically captive. However, they were being fed regularly by human attendants at a specific custom-designed location where they had been deliberately introduced. (Hoping in the future to be able to post photographs of the same species in natural settings.)

White-fronted geese front-center and right;
Red-breasted geese (Branta ruficollis) mostly at left;
Moorhen (Gallinula chloropus) in background.

(Hoping in the future to be able to post photographs of the same species in natural settings.)

The moorhen was probably a wild visitor.
