This morning (4/30) around 11, Lorna and I saw a bird we thought was a possible candidate for Bean Goose at Atkins Lake in Douglas Co. We saw it at about 75 yards on the north end of the lake standing on the mud. It was a relatively long-necked, tall goose; Lorna at first glimpse when we drove up thought it was a crane, but quickly corrected herself. The body was brown with no outstanding markings on the face or the belly; the legs were orange colored; and the bill was dark. It only stayed in the open for a few moments before it walked into tall weeds and we lost sight of it.
