I have seen pics of these before, it is a swan goose, but I don't think we have them in US. Native to Mongolia and Russia. Look it up on Wikipedia.

Hi, that was my comment above - I forgot to put in my name. Your goose is a swan goose, I found pics quite easily by typing in "geese images USA".

It's some kind of goose, I think, probably only the US side of the Atlantic - I can't find it in my European bird book. Try looking up geese and i'm pretty sure you'll find it.
