Tundra Bean-Goose (Anser serrirostris) , Los Angeles, California, USA., Location Earvin Magic Johnson Park, 23 October 2023
First found by Jon Feenstra near Lancaster 6 March 2023 and remaining in the area at Apollo Park where it became quite tame. through 8 July 2023. Dan Singer and I looked unsuccessfully for it on 10 July after which it showed up here in Willowbrook on 13 July 2023 remaining through the current period. I understand analysis of plumage and bill pattern confirmed it was the same bird. If accepted this would be the 6th record for California.
