Cackling Goose Photos

Photography by Terry Sohl

My Favorite: Cackling Geese weren't named as a distinct species until 2004, and given that Canada Geese are so incredibly numerous, I admit I haven't paid much attention to their smaller cousins. Hence only a couple of pics below, but I do like this flight shot from 2018.
