There are many big birds in this world. From the World’s Largest Pelican in Minnesota to the World’s Largest Duck in Alberta, Canada to, well, that one that yellow one that lives on Sesame Street.
But only one holds the title of World’s Largest Goose: and boy is she a beauty!
In Sumner, Missouri, the “Wild Goose Capital of the World,” this giant fiberglass goose “Maxie”, as she is called, flies proudly over the community park.
At forty feet tall with a wingspan of 61 feet, Maxie could feed a whole city for Christmas dinner…but we wouldn’t do that to such a beautiful creature! Instead we’ll leave her to keep a watchful eye over the park and stand gloriously for all to see.
