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.
