This juvenile/first alternate Greater White-fronted Goose (Anser albifrons) was photographed at Village Creek Drying Beds, Fort Worth, Texas in March 1992 by Martin Reid. Note the long, orange-based bill, the long, swan-like neck, the darkish cap that runs down the nape onto the upper hindneck, and the long legs. Note also the very dark flanks (for a juvenile), greater coverts concolorous with other wing coverts and primaries and with thin pale trailing edge (could be due to wear), and fairly prominent white tip to the tail:
