This juvenile Greater White-fronted Goose (Anser albifrons) was photographed at Village Creek Drying Beds, Fort Worth, Texas in October 1998 by Martin Reid; click here for pics of this bird with another individual on December 31, 1998. Note the long, thick, dark-tipped all-orange bill (with peachy - not pink - tone near tip), the thick, longish neck, the very thin scapular fringing, and the long legs. Note also the lack of a white flank line, the greater coverts with fairly thin pale trailing edge (on standing bird), and the somewhat prominent white tipping to the tail:

Note that in the images below, the strong angled light has reduced the bill colors - in real life it was strongly orange with a peachy tone close to the dark nail:
