That is definitely a Ross's goose. I admire your patience for scanning all of those white geese to find it. I just returned from 3 days  at Klamath Falls where there were thousands of Ross's geese - I would estimate 8,000 of them. I searched the flocks for hours trying to locate a dark morph and succeeded in finding one and getting photos. It is a very attractive bird for sure. At one location I felt sure I had seen at least for dark birds but will have to review my distant photos to confirm.I have several hundred images to work through but will be put them on my website a few at a time as I process them. The Ross's picture is up there now in the recently added images gallery.

If the photo is accessible please let me know if you think otherwise.It stood out as being smaller and much cleaner. Many of the other geese were stained.
Also were a couple neck collared Snow Geese.  Always a treat to watch them. Sat for an hour within 40 ft of the edge of the huge noisy flock.
