It’s easy to get confised as to what this animal really is. One look at these birds and you will know they’re geese rather than a swan. Its name comes from its long, swan-like necks. Swan geese are the preferred type of homeowners who want geese as pets.
Their vocalizations are described as a loud drawn-out and ascending hinking aang call and the warning call as a barking hong, repeated two or three times in short successions.
