Red-breasted Goose

Branta ruficollis

Jim Frazier's flock of Red-breasteds

The most beautiful of all geese, Red-breasteds breed in Arctic Siberia and winter in southeastern Europe. The sexes are similar but the gander is more heavily built.

A clutch may include up to 9 creamy-white eggs which the female sits on for 25 days.
