Emperor Goose (Anser canagicus) (1)

- Comments: "Continuing bird. In flock of Cackling Geese about 800 m north
of Rentenaar Road, viewed at a distance from Reeder Road. As I got on it I
also noted the Brant just a short distance away -- so after 2 hours of
searching for these birds, they suddenly appeared in my scope view at the
same time. Poor distant photos below show the bird. ... This bird appears
to be a first-winter individual that has already gained most of its adult
plumage. The neck and face were fully white except for a smattering of dark
feathers near and below the eye and bill. The bill appeared all dark; this
could have been due to being covered in mud, but I think(?) that at least
some pink would have shown through during the time I observed it had the
bill been entirely pink. The legs were orange but were not as bright orange
as an adult's would be. The legs might also have been dulled by mud, I
suppose, but as I understand it, the presence of even a few dark feathers
on the face indicate a first-year bird. I am open to being corrected on
this, as I do not have much experience with this species, but that's what
I'm taking from what I've read."

- Comments: "Continuing bird. In flock of Cackling Geese about 800 m north
of Rentenaar Road, viewed at a distance from Reeder Road. It lifted its
head just as I got on the Emperor Goose -- so after 2 hours of searching
for these two birds, they suddenly appeared in my scope view at the same
time. Poor distant photo below shows Brant toward left edge."
