The Cackling Goose is a type of Branta goose, similar in plumage and shape to the Canada Goose, though generally smaller in stature. Cackling Geese can often be distinguished by their overall body size, as well as the proportionally smaller size of their bill, when compared to Canada Geese.
Cackling Geese are native to North America. These migratory birds breed in northern Canada and parts of Alaska, moving southward during the winter, depending on food supplies.
