Observed these two this AM:
Larger than Mallards, smaller than Lesser Canada Geese.
Apparently in molt.
Strange behavior, swimming along shoreline in very shallow water and grazing on underwater vegetation . Lifting head from water only to get a short breath.

We often see Mallard x domestics, but these have a different bill and head shape.

Swallows Park, Clarkston, Asotin county, Washington, USA
