Introduction
All the species of the genus Branta are distinguished by their dark sooty colour, relieved by white, and as a distinction from the grey geese of the genus Anser. Among the species from these two genera, the red-breasted goose is the smallest at 53-56 cm (21-22 in) in length. This brightly marked species is unmistakable but can be surprisingly difficult to find amongst Brent geese. At long distances, the red of the breast tends to look dark.
The main predator for red-breasted geese eggs and goslings is the Taimyr Gull which have access to nests located on river islands.
While wintering, the red-breasted goose feeds on grasses, leaves and seeds.
Habitat
Terrestrial, freshwater marine.
Threats
Hunting, habitat loss.
