Fwd: maybe yes/maybe no: cackling goose?

Kingsboider opinion: this is likely a variant LESSER CANADA GOOSE subspecies..bill still too long not stubby for cackling as well as head shape too gradual here

hey Peter,
i was in Prospect around 8 AM and spotted this mini-goose.  i had just enough time to shoot off a few frames before it flew off to the north and then out of the park.  maybe a "least" but it was ultra small.

hope you're out birding.  i'm hoping to get out again later today!
