The upland goose or Magellan goose Chloephaga picta is a sheldgoose of the shelduck-sheldgoose subfamily of the Anatidae , the biological family that includes the ducks and most duck-like waterfowl such as the geese and swans.

In Chapter VI of On the Origin of Species , author Charles Darwin noted that the upland goose has webbing between its toes that appeared to be "rudimentary in function, though not in structure", and concluded that this was a vestigial anatomical feature in this bird. They are found in southern temperate grasslands , arid lowland scrubs, pastures and agricultural lands, from sea level up to around 1, meters. The upland goose is primarily a herbivore , feeding mostly of seeds, leaves, stems, and other plant matter.
