Need help identifying a goose.  Cackling or small Canada.  To me, it seems like a smaller, stubbier bill.  Wings extend further back.  Looks like a steeper head than sloped Canada.

Which one, the one dead center, in front of the Canada that's in front of the Mallard?

Yes.

There's another one to the left of the center cackling that looks smallish to me, but may be to large for Cackling. 

You may be right. Missed that. There's a fairly large size range for Richy's Cackling but it's a tough angle to say much.

At least two Cacklings in the photo, with a possible third facing mostly away from the camera and right behind (but closer) than the photo's subject goose.

Agreed. Definitely two.
