Possible Greater White-fronted/ Cacking Goose Hybrid

Went to Lake Elizabeth in Fremont yesterday 11/20. There were lots of geese, Ruddy Duck, Canvasback, and Northern Shovler on the lake and adjoining field.

This link is to a picture of a goose we saw in a mixed flock of Canada and cackling geese in a field on the north side of the lake. Along with a single Greater White-fronted goose there was the one in the picture. Looking online at pictures it might be a hybrid of a cackling and white-fronted. It’s legs were orange. Any other thoughts as to what it could be?https://www.flickr.com/photos/152728363@N04/51695462933/in/dateposted-public/
