Western NC Goose, stood out in the group (maybe cackling or subspecies?)

Recommended Posts


Western NC, 10/27/2022. In a small pond near other small ponds and wetlands. This bird was  smaller than the rest of the Canada Geese, with what seemed to be a shorter neck.  The front of the chest was much darker. Hard to tell for me but it kept sticking out so I figure I'd ask!

Here in Michigan they want us to throw these (smaller ssp.) in to Canada Goose (canadensis Group).  Although the ones I've reported had the white ring around the neck.  I've had some that have been approved as Cacklers though that don't have the typical "equilateral triangle" shaped bill, but flatter like this.
