Identification

POWERED BY MERLIN

Rather large, dark gray-brown goose with variable orange patch on bill (often extensively orange, unlike typical Tundra Bean Goose), orange legs. In flight lacks contrasting pale forewing areas of Pink-footed Goose and Graylag Goose. Not always safely told in the field from Tundra Bean-Goose, but Taiga averages a shorter, more sloping bill, versus the shorter and thicker bill of Tundra. Uncommon to locally common winter migrant from breeding grounds in Russia. Found mainly at a few traditional wintering sites in farmland and wetlands, where associates readily with other geese.
