Any of several waterfowl species from the family Anatidae. Females are referred to as Goose and the male as Gander. Collectively they are a gaggle. When flying they will be referred to as a wedge, a skein or a team” and when flying really closely a plump.
*Even though some of my birds are not portfolio worthy I continue to keep them for a reference record for me in my birding journey. It’s good to have something to refer back to for comparison and identification.
