The Cape Barren Goose is a very large, pale grey goose with a relatively small head.

Its stubby triangular bill is almost concealed by a very prominent greenish-yellow cere (skin above the bill). It has rows of large dark spots in lines across the scapulars (shoulders) and wing coverts.

At Bird Park Islamabad, you will be able to see their growth and true beauty in their natural environment and get to know up close how beautiful they are.
