Drawing two threads together: a recent question by Tony Russell on the
taxonomy of the feral goose (Anser anser?) and the current debate on
LHI, is there a reason why feral geese are not included in the 'The
Taxonomy and Species of Birds of Australia and its Territories' by Les
Christidis & Walter Boles,? I presume it is because of the uncertain
provenance of such birds.
