Magpie Goose

(Family Anseranatidae)

The sole living representative of this family is the Magpie Goose Anseranas semipalmata. It differs from the ducks, geese and swans of the family Anatidae by having only partially webbed toes. This large goose is widespread throughout coastal northern and eastern Australia, although some individuals, mostly younger birds, are seen quite long distances inland. It is also found in southern New Guinea.
