adult, outside normal range
This lone bird appeared for the very first time at Bhigwan Bird Sanctuary, Western India, in Dec 2021. It hung out with a large flock of Bar-headed geese (who are regular visitors there) and left with them in Jan/Feb 2022. This bird appears to be a Taiga Bean Goose based on the markings on its beak - the URL leads to a PDF download of the comparative identification of the Taiga & Tundra Bean geese / goose. (?) :)
