    Do only male ross's geese have warts? I was under the impression both get them, but they are more pronounced on males?

    Not certain but I thought it was just the males. those are pretty pronounced.

    You can make one as warty as you want with an artificial bill, which that bird appears to have. I've personally never seen a warted up blue Ross, but that doesn't mean it can't happen.

    Nice bird and mount.
