Greater White-fronted Goose (Western)

**Very rare -- standing along northeast portion of bunker pond shoreline. Photos.

A presumed "Taiga" bird, based on pinkish-orange bill that wasn't obviously long/large and seemed to contrast with the bird's orange legs; relatively thin/pale-necked; limited black on the belly; whitish scap margins; discernibly smaller than nearby CANG; etc.
