Default Cackling goose

Text from All about birds.

Karen Foil
The newly recognized Cackling Goose is a smaller version of the Canada Goose. Formerly considered the smallest subspecies of one variable species, recent work on genetic differences found the four smallest forms to be very different. These four races are now recognized as a full species: the Cackling Goose. It breeds farther northward and westward than does the Canada Goose.



I shot these the other day when thousands of white geese were flying into the pond in front of the viewing platform at the Colusa NWR. Mixed in were a few dozen Cacklers.

I notice that these Cackling Geese have shorter necks than the Canadian Geese from your pictures. Thanks for sharing the info about this species. Again, nice series!

Yes, these guys are much smaller than the normal Canada goose. The Canada's bill is much longer too.
