If you are seeking refuge from strange deluge of bird bloggers trying to sell you bird-related Christmas gifts, you've come to the right place my friends. Nothing to look at here except for a grass-eating goose.
It seems that grass is a delicious food. All geese love it. Coots love it. Wigeon love it. Hoofed mammals love it. Even dogs and cats eat it...I've clearly been missing out. It must be pretty good.
This Greater White-fronted Goose was extremely content with its patch of grass. The grass was so tasty that it's fantastic taste completely overwhelmed any fear of humans the goose may have had. Considering my feelings about most people, I probably should have gotten down there and started grazing myself.
This cooperative goose was photographed at Lake Merced, San Francisco, CA.
