Carl Gunnar Gustavsson comments :
“Well, personally I would now consider it to be a "presumed/probable Red-breasted x Brent Goose". On one of the new pictures, the third one from the top, one can see all the white lines which surround the red cheek area in the Red-breasted Goose. I think the only possible explanation for that is that the bird is a Red-breasted Goose hybrid. The Brent Goose component is obvious. Like in previous pictures, this one also gives a (still not convincing) impression of a somewhat paler area corresponding to the white spot near the base of bill in the Red-breasted. I have not looked in detail but so far I think wings and body colour also are also compatible with the idea of Red-reasted x Brent.
The degree of classification confidence is clearly better than "probable" and should in my opinion be "presumed" = "probable" Red-breasted x Brent Goose".
Nice find! “
