Ducks vs Geese
Ducks are generally fat birds with colorful feathers such as orange, to green, to black, and to yellow. They have good quality white meat. Some ducks dive to search for mollusks, aquatic plants, and small fishes. They also feed on insects, grasses, small amphibians, and other food.
Geese, on the other hand, have longer necks compared to the ducks. Like the ducks, they also prefer aquatic environments. Although geese live on aquatic surroundings, they tend to be herbivores. They also have more webbing on the feet compared to ducks. Geese only have a 3 color wheel chart. Their feathers are grey, black, white, or spotted grey, black or white. Geese honk loudly to communicate with others. One more quick fact about geese is that they have strong impulse to return to where they hatched and even as they grow up, they always tend to go back to where they came from.
