Found this goose on campus, the only other geese are canada geese. I think but its only a guess that it may be a hybrid between a canada goose and a grey-lag goose

Not a White-Fronted Goose

I agree it's not a plain white-front and that it definetely has some Canada Goose and maybe White-Fronted Goose in it

Whether hybrid or not, one of the major questions to answer is "what is likely, what is possible?".
In this case, where would a whitefront hybrid come from? Or more importantly, where would the whitefront parent come from?

Also bear inb mind, an anser-branta hybrid is highly likely to be sterile.
