Magpie Goose

Magpie Goose
The Magpie Goose is a waterbird species found in coastal northern Australia and savannah in southern New Guinea. It is a resident breeder in northern Australia and in southern New Guinea. The Magpie Goose is found in a variety of open wetland areas such as floodplains and swamps. It is fairly sedentary apart from some movement during the dry season. They are colonial breeders and are gregarious outside of the breeding season when they can form large and noisy flocks of up to a few thousand individuals. Its nest is on the ground, and a typical clutch is 5-14 eggs. Some males mate with two females, all of which raise the young, unlike some other polygamous birds. This may be beneficial when predation of young is high as chicks raised by trios are more likely to survive. Taken at Sylvan Heights Bird Park. Cropped only; otherwise untouched.
