I've been going to this lake for years and there is always about 2 or 3 of these geese with the most obnoxious call (very loud and not pleasant). I can't find them on any NC list of geese. Any ideas?

This is Lake Wheeler in Raleigh NC.

The front bird is a Swan Goose (Domestic type). The back-left bird is a Graylag x Swan Goose (Domestic type)(hybrid). The back-right bird is difficult to be certain of ID, but it is mostly Graylag Goose (Domestic type). The dark hindneck (as is the bill knob) of Swan Goose is often expressed in Graylag x Swan hybrids, as in the back-left bird, which, otherwise, might be considered to be a Graylag.
