Kate's notes: Continuing. Similar in size to cackling geese. Colder body
overall, scaly appearance to body feathers. Head and back of neck white
with crisp demarcation between darker front and white back. Paler bill than
cackling geese nearby. All birds in the field flushed by sprayer before
satisfying, proper study of the bird could be completed. Will have to
return if the bird sticks on a calmer day."

(rare rare moment of idiocy! except unless an “Idiot” in sense of Poet and
Romantic and Beautiful delicate Soul, losing itself in timelessness and
beauty of nature and love)"
