Hi Shah,

Your bird is not a duck but a goose, which should narrow it down a bit for you...

This is not a Bean Goose, but rather than go any further with the ID, I'll leave it for Shah.

Ok.. Now I guess there are two options I have... But tell me whether I am going in the right direction.

Option 1: Eastern Greylag Goose
Option 2: Greater White-fronted Goose

Thankx
Shah
