ESCAPED EXOTIC
Waller Creek at Lady Bird Lake
Austin, Travis Co., Texas
26 December 2009

Not a clue where this bird came from but it spent the winter with some Wood Ducks on Lady Bird Lake here in Austin. Gorgeous bird and a strong flier. The gold color on the water is reflection from a nearby building with gold colored windows which added even more color to a colorful scene. I ended up with several hundred nice images of this bird over a few weeks period.

The species was once widespread in eastern Asia, but large-scale exports and the destruction of its forest habitat have reduced populations in eastern Russia and in China to below 1,000 pairs in each country; Japan, however, is thought to still hold some 5,000 pairs.

(The Magpie Goose is no longer considered to be part of the Anatidae,...
