Geese walk in Parking Lot and grass

It is interesting to see Geese walk in Parking Lot and grass. That goose had not gone awry. Funny, geese walk together.

Here are some other birds also called "geese":

Greylag goose at St. James's Park, London, England

The Orinoco goose (Neochen jubata)
The Egyptian goose (Alopochen aegyptiaca)
The South American sheldgeese in the genus Chloephaga
The prehistoric Malagasy sheldgoose (Centrornis majori)

The spur-winged goose (Plectropterus gambensis) is most closely related to the shelducks, but distinct enough to warrant its own subfamily, the Plectropterinae.
The blue-winged goose (Cyanochen cyanopterus) and the Cape Barren goose (Cereopsis novaehollandiae) have disputed affinities. They belong to separate ancient lineages that may ally either to the Tadorninae, the Anserinae, or closer to the dabbling ducks (Anatinae).
The three species of small waterfowl in the genus Nettapus named "pygmy geese"; they seem to represent another ancient lineage, with possible affinities to the Cape Barren goose or the spur-winged goose.
The maned goose, also known as the maned duck or Australian wood duck (Chenonetta jubata)
A genus of prehistorically extinct seaducks, Chendytes, is sometimes called the "diving-geese" due to their large size.
The magpie goose (Anseranas semipalmata) is the only living species in the family Anseranatidae.
The northern gannet (Morus bassanus), a seabird, is also known as the "solan goose", although it is unrelated to the true geese, or any other Anseriformes for that matter.
