Canada Goose, gosling – branta canadensis – This downy baby goose is commonly found throughout the United States and Canada.
The species previously considered Canada Goose has recently been split into two distinct groups, the Canada Goose remains for the larger of the birds and the Cackling Goose label has been given to the smaller of what was formerly known as Canada Goose.
The Canada Goose has a long history of rigid migration patterns that has recently changed with some geese thriving year-round in urban settings.
