Artist's Description

A flock of Magpie Geese (Anseranas semipalmata) leap into the air as I get too close to them. Magpie Geese are now thought to be the only extant species of a family of waterfowl (Anseranatidae) that, despite appearances, are more like the Screamers (family Anhimidae) of South America than ducks and are therefore not Geese at all! They have many anatomical differences to ducks, but perhaps the most obvious are the only partially webbed (semi-palmate) feet and the highly reduced row of lamellae that ducks (especially the dabbling ducks) use to filter feed. Katherine, Northern Territory, Australia.
