I'm currently teaching a waterfowl mounting class and I let my students bring their own birds for the class if they want. One of my students, Julia, asked if she could bring a Ross' goose. When we unpacked it, I knew immediately that it was not a Ross' because it looked like a miniature Canada Goose! I thought maybe it was a Lesser Canada, but when we researched it, it looks like it is probably a Cackling Goose. I had no idea there was so much turmoil in the taxonomy of these geese species. Do any of you guys have thoughts or opinions about these smaller geese?
