Large white bird, grey head - Eastern Ontario, Canada (1 Viewer)

While editing a photo of a large gaggle of Canada geese shot this morning in eastern Ontario, Canada, I noticed one of the birds was white with a grey head. Obviously not a Canada goose and I have no idea what kind of bird it was. Some kind of feral hybrid domestic goose? Can anyone ID this? Apologies for the bad image quality. This is a very small crop scaled up.

I was thinking immature Snow Goose too. Gordon, do you have any photos showing the rear end of the bird?

Sorry, no. Unfortunately, I didn't notice this bird until I saw the file in the computer. This was the only angle I got on it. Wish I'd been more observant. Immature Snow Goose makes more sense, but I've never before seen one in this area before, although huge flocks of them have been see east of here.
