This goose (photos 1-6) was near the North Pump House of the Central Park Reservoir on January 7, 2013. It

climbed out to preen and I saw the yellow-orange legs. It is probably a hybrid, but what? It is not banded. It

appears to be mostly Canada Goose.  One suggestion is that it is a mix with Swan Goose.

I am also adding a photo of another hybrid that I photographed on November 30, 2013 on Mill Pond in Sayville,

LI. I saw the bird with Peter Post. The goose did not get out of the water, but one can see a bit of a leg showing at

its side, and the color is not that far from the leg color of the CP bird.

For comparison, I have added a photo of a male domestic goose, "Goosie", that aggressively guards the front yard

of a rehabilitator in the Adirondacks.
