Good thought, but the bill on the Snow Goose is different. I don't see the Snow Goose "grin patch".
I think Larry put his finger on it. The goose has a Canada Goose shape and size, but a Domestic Goose coloring, including the bill. Leucism affects the feathers, but I believe the bill remains its normal color. This goose had a yellow bill.
