Cackling Geese
Branta hutchinsii

Recently there was a split of different subspecies of Canada Goose (B. canadensis) into two different species. I think these birds are from the smallest subspecies in the new species group formerly B. c. minima, now B. h. minima

Location: Swan Lake, Sitka, Alaska

Previous: Bufflehead (Bucephala albeola)
Next: Goose and Gull
