Tundra Bean Goose (Anser serrirostris) Visiting Okinawa

More than likely, if this is truly a Tundra Bean Goose, it will leave next month.

Most migratory birds spend the months of November through March in Okinawa, then depart.

Sometimes, identification is made simpler with images of the bird in flight.

Colors and patterns on the wings and tail feathers help with ID.

When this bird takes off, to fly, it moves really fast.

So, plenty of images showing tail feathers, were no problem at all.

I wish some scientist, would come along and confirm, we have a Tundra Bean Goose.

They could have any one of my photos of the wild thing.

Wouldn't the one with the pink house, look nice in a scientist's office ?
