Observation details

It was among a flock of Canada Geese in the small cove in the SE corner of the pond. It stood out immediately from the CAGO with a very distinctive pink/orange bill with white on it and a shorter neck in comparison to the CAGO. Also browner and riding lower in the water, with a different shaped breast and more white on the rear. I did not have binoculars as my primary purpose was not birding, but I am attaching iPhone photos for documentation. I searched quite a bit and this is the only likely candidate. In addition, a confirmed sighting of a greater-white fronted goose was also documented in this location within a day or two by another birder.
