Hawaiian Goose on Flickr.
A very friendly Hawaiian goose (or Nene Bird as they are also known) eats out of my Mum’s hand this morning at Martin Mere. The Hawaiian goose was adopted as the official bird of Hawaii in 1957. The Hawaiian goose is among the most threatened of all waterfowl and is the sixth most endangered waterfowl species worldwide. So it’s always a joy to see them at Martin Mere and get close to them :))
