Last fall we enjoyed the stopover of a trio of Cackling Geese at our local Canadian Tire.
Yesterday, a pair of Cackling Geese dropped in on the playing field of the local high school. One of the birds is of the typical pale-breasted "Richardson's" type we expect to see as a migrant in NW Ontario. The other is slightly smaller with a darker breast and much larger white cheek patch - interesting couple.
