Hillsboro, OR 1/7/2019

I noticed what appears to be a Brant among a large flock of Cackling Geese today (poor but usable iPhone photos attached).  My leaning is that this is a juvenile Brant but wanted to get opinions from those better versed in the species.  A Brant would generally not be expected at my inland location but is not unheard of.

Thanks!

Thanks all.  I was a bit thrown off by the lack of contrast between the upper wings and chest/neck but it seems this can be explained by a juvenile transitioning into adult plumage. (?)
