White-fronted goose at San Dieguito Rd horse pastures

Seen at midday today among Canada Geese. Distinguished by smaller size, bright orange legs, white base to pinkish bill (although hard to judge bill color accurately in haze at distance), white side stripe. Surprisingly hard to refind after initial look, being at times hidden by fence slates.

Didn’t see recently reported Snow goose but may easily have missed it.
