In flight shows extensively pale gray leading edge to upperwings, rather pale underwing coverts, and broad white tail tip. Compare to other gray geese, which differ in details of bill pattern and color, head and neck pattern, and have dark underwings. Inhabits lakes, marshes, and wetlands, and even urban parks in parts of its European range.
