Lesser Canada Goose
At one time all Canada Geese were "Canada Geese." However, I believe it was in 1984 that the Canada Goose was reclassified with sub-species to include the Lesser Canada and the Cackling Goose.
This immature Lesser Canada Goose shows faint shades of its adult markings. If time permitted, these young geese would have been ideal for a full day's observation. Another time, maybe.
