I saw the same goose today, which I described in an eBird report as a
hybrid Canada x Greater White-fronted Goose.

If there are no photos of a GWFG, I suspect there is only one
(half-identified) bird.

Does anyone have a photo of the reported Greater White Fronted Goose at
Fisher Meadows Rec Area?  The reason I ask is that I recently saw an odd
goose there that I thought was perhaps a hybrid of some kind domestic or
wild and it did not appear to be a standard GWF.  I am wondering if a new
bird has shown up or if it is the same.  I have seen several reports with
no photos.  If anyone goes there soon, please consider taking and sharing a
photo of it.  Thanks!
