Today's Bird: Andean Geese

Today's Bird is the Andean Goose.  No shocker--they live at altitude (in the Andes) in highland lakes.  They're not a super-common bird, but they're findable.  We didn't see any at the first highland lake we visited, but when we got to the second they were hanging out right in the middle of the field.  I know they look like domestic geese, but I promise they're not.  I took this picture in the wilds of Lake Piruay, a couple hours from Cuzco, Peru on June 16, 2012.
