Pink-footed Goose (Anser brachyrhynchus)

Eastern part of the island



7/13/2021: While driving along on the main highway, I noticed a few Pink-footed Geese on the side of the road. I went back to the spot, but I could not find them again, but then I got the idea about driving around on the back roads. It looked like the moon up there with some areas without noticeable vegetation.
