  1. I believe I spotted one of these birds in the Flamborough area of Southern Ontario Canada. At first I thought it was a swan, but then noted the brown on the back and back of head. It was extrememly tall, much taller than a canadian goose and the neck was thick and white. The photo above is much shorter than what I spotted but this is as close as I can come to it.

  2. Hi Brenda:

    It may be, it is kept in waterfowl collections and sometimes escapes. Even more common is the domesticated version known as Chinese Geese. You can see some information on it here:
