The identification of distant Cackling Geese in flight is rarely straightforward. There is significant size variation in migrant Canada Geese in these parts, and many flocks include obviously smaller individuals. This bird, however, certainly has the feel of a Cackling Goose and is going on my list as such. Most notable are the overall small size, short neck, bill so small that it's hardly noticeable at a distance, and pointy narrow wings.
