For those of you not into bird watching, Cackling Geese are a tiny species of goose that looks to most people like a miniature Canada Goose. The stubby bill, small neck, white collar (sometimes visible) are good ID features for this species.
|The bird dead centre exhibits some classic features of Cackling Goose, I didn't get good looks at the two birds to the left, but they may be Cackling Geese as well. Note how big the Mallard behind appears.|
