Appearance - The Greylag Goose has a grey-brown plumage with pale fringes on the feathers. Underparts are light-grey with a white belly. Head and neck are grey-brown, beak is orange or pink, and legs are pinkish. Both sexes are alike.
Notes - The Greylag Goose like many other geese migrate south during the winter but the Greylag is always the last to leave, lagging behind the others which is probably how it got its name. The Greylag is the largest of the grey geese and ancestor of the domestic goose.
