Tom,At Broad Brook Pond, and at Frog Hollow Rd (Ellington) cornfield where the geese feed, there have been 1 Pink-footed, up to 4 Greater White-fronted, 1 Ross's, 1 Cackling, and 6000+ Canadas.From your description ("white patch around the orange bill"), it sounds like you saw a Greater White-fronted.
Here is a link to my photos of many of these geese:

 I reported a Greater White- fronted Goose yesterday. Now i am reading that
people are seeing a Pink footed Goose. So i am thinking i may have made a
mistake. The bird i saw had a good size white patch around the orange bill.
I could not see it feet. If anyone has photos of the Pink footed Goose i
would like to see them. I am more confused than normal. Thanks ahead of
time to anyone that can help. Tom Murray
