Subject: [hmbirds] possible Pink-footed Goose, Saratoga lake
Cathy and I are now looking at another Anser goose at the state boat launch
at the outlet of Saratoga lake. appears to be a Pink-footed, perhaps the
same as reported a couple of days ago by David de Siena at lock 2? with
canadas on shore edge north of the bridge on the east side close to the
corner of the entry road.

this one has a dark brown head and neck with dark striations on the side of
the neck, no white on the face, a stubby dark bill with limited orangey
toward the tip. the leg color is more orange than pink, but some pfgo
photos seem to show the color as variable. close views of some photos show
pink toes vs more orange tibio-tarus. preliminary back of camera and
digiscope shots attached.
