Media notes

Had little chance to photograph this bird. Unfortunately, I caught it preening. However, it shows size, overall color and white band around pink bill

Observation details

Brown gray goose about 80% the size of nearby Canadas. Large white stripe around pink bill. Black wing tips and tail. Saw white tail tip as it took off with Canadas. Did not get definite look at belly barring as it flew directly away from me. Took lousy photo at 50 yards with point and shot, but it may be OK to help tell to species
