The mythical turducken...or, what IS this thing?

I saw this bird THINGIE in Amsterdam and I would very much like to know what it is. I would imagine that it's not a turducken (hehe), but it looks like a goose with mallard duck feathers. Duck, duck...goose?

So far, no one I've asked (including a real, live Dutch person) has known what it is and I'm too lazy/not exactly sure what to Google. If you know what it's called, post in the comments.

I do know, whatever it is, that it had a strict "no paparazzi" rule; it was ticked off when I was taking pictures!


  1. I think its an Egyptian goose, they are migrating to Europe and creating problems for the native birds. I once encountered one who was very aggressive, while we were feeding ducks.

  2. Thank you thank you for solving the mystery!
