So the ABA doesn’t “allow” Greylag Geese to count in any official capacity, and if you list it on eBird, it doesn’t increment your bird counts.

A mated pair of Greylag Geese, somewhere in Kissimmee. This particular pair seems to have sort of adopted a Mottled Duck family and follows them around a lot. Pretty wild, eh?

The reason for this, apparently, is that this species isn’t “wild” enough.

I can’t imagine what they’re talking about!
