Please forgive me.  Male and female, so close to perfect unity that as the head of the female was so marginally visible, I am guilty of a little cloning.   

See it as it is meant.  A little fun. All,  we must see many things that maybe do not fit...  but hey,  am just sharing what has bothered me for nearly a year before I had the courage to show.

Yes, the three winged Canada goose has been taking over riparian habitat in the Pacific Northwest. This is a rare genetic anomaly apparently caused by global warming. Incidentally, the Canada goose is a prime suspect in climate change due to global pooping.

Speaking as a proud and well informed Canadian I will tell you that this variant in the species has been genetically modified to allow for a third wing to stabilize the bird during bombing runs. These birds are far cheaper than anything General Dynamics can offer and we can send literally tens of thousands of these flying bovines into any local and poop you into submission. :) PS do not look up with your mouth open, you have been warned

What a fun image. The comments of Moby and Malcolm are clever and very humorous. Well done, Dave.
