I have calls into Patauxent (sp) about the mysterious blue band on one of these birds, and I was suspicious of them as wild birds because they let me get so close. However, if you go to this link - those of you who care about this find - you will read that this species is notorious for allowing humans to approach, and is called the 'fool' goose by some. This may well be one of the southernmost observations of this species in any event. I will post CarolinaBirds to see if anyone has spotted something like this along those coasts.
