Cape Barren Goose UQ Gatton campus
The CBG was on the opposite side of campus from Lake Galletly with a large flock of Magpie Geese on Sunday morning. While it is quite possible this is an escape, it is not carrying a ring, and was wary and alert when a tractor passed about 50 metres away. Also, according to the first atlas of Australian birds, there were small flocks of 'apparently wild birds' near Ivanhoe in northern NSW in 1974. Given the influx of some other water birds, I guess there is a good chance that this is a wild bird.
