In my posting yesterday I mentioned that the bill of the goose that we saw
was orange, even though the Peterson Field Guide states that the bill of the
Greenland race (Ssp. flavirostris) is yellow.
Today, I checked my Princeton Field Guide to the Birds of Europe. It states
that the bill of this race is orange-yellow, "predominantly orange".
