Doug¹s goose on Ironhorse Blvd. is indeed a Greater White-fronted of the
Greenland subspecies (Anser frontalis flavirostris).  The Greenland-type is
a bit bulkier than the North American-type and as you can see in the pic¹s
that this bird also has a larger bill and a thick-necked appearance which is
also indicative of the Greeland-type.  I asked Doug to send me some pic¹s,
which were distant but large enough in that I could enlarge them to see the
identifying marks on this bird.  I¹ve posted them on my flickr account for
those of you that are interested:
