Photos. Smaller goose, with more grayish colored mantle and upper wing coverts. Small relatively stubby bill with dark base and pale area near the tip and along lower edge of upper mandible. Mostly whitish tail visible in flight. Arriving early may help catch a glimpse of this bird. It left with one of the earliest departing flocks of Canada geese, around 7 AM."
