Turns out the white goose in Skokie was a Snow Goose, NOT a Ross's Goose. My wife put her new camera to fine use, and it is clearly not a Ross's. Longer bill, no blue at the base, and a clear grin patch. Her best couple photos will be attached to my eBird report. Apologies to anyone who went out to chase a Ross's.
