Bonus on Today's Wild Goose Chase
Today, I went back with the Sigma 50-500mm lens and a tripod, using the Pentax K3.

Quote from a good bird-expert friend of mine, who is like some sort of Masterbirder:
"Mike-San, top ones the Swan Goose, bottom is a Tundra Bean Goose. (Anser serrirostris) There's still not a consensus on the status of the Bean Goose, some consider it split as two distinct species Taiga Bean Goose (Anser fabalis) and the Tundra as a subspecies (A. fabalis serrirostris). Though they mingle in the winter, they have distinct breeding habitats meaning not much cross breeding. If their not already two distinct species, they're on the way to becoming such."
