With the white behind the bill, almost looks like some Whitefronted goose in it. What do the breasts look like?

Quill Lake goose then. I'd be willing to bet that that's what it is.

So we got another crack at them today. Would not commit but after the hunt we found them. Check the legs out. Quill lake for sure.

Park goose...domestic greylag essentially. Rear end on both are too big for a wild/wild hybrid IMO.

Yes hybrid, Canada/white front or grayleg. Sounded like speck when the flock flew by.
