Goose in Los Angeles

Recommended Posts

Please help me identify this goose.  I expect that it is in the genus Anser, but can't figure out the species unless it is a juvenile or a female without the typical adult male markings.

Seen on September 3, 2018 before sundown on the Los Angeles River in the Glendale Narrows adjacent to Griffith Park and the I-5 freeway, 1/4 mile north of Los Feliz Blvd.

The weather was sunny, warm and breezy.

It was alone.  I didn't see any others like it, nor any other geese.  It was standing on rocks, dabbing in the water, preening and swimming.  See attached photos. 

Thanks, Dan.
