Default feral goose

I saw this odd looking bird at the Balboa Park near Los Angeles over the weekend. I couldn't ID him on my Field Guide until I did a web search and found that it is an Egyptian Goose, not native to the US (that's why he wasn't listed in the Field Guide to North American Birds!!). There are very small isolated populations of them, which are believed to have originated by few that escaped from zoos and captivity. Sorry, got pretty close but the lighting wasn't the greatest. And yes, his feet were that bright pink!

This is what happens when seagulls are fed too many Mac Donald's french fries...
