I am just wanting to confirm the ID of the one. I have been fooled so many times I just want to double check.
Also, is the one on the left a Canada? It seems to stand a little taller and I wonder if it is just more relaxed than the others with their tall necks. It's the time of year when we get both species. Summer is easy. :)

Thank you so much.

Yep, bottom right bird is a Cackling Goose - note in particular the 'gentle' rounded head and small stubby bill. The other arrowed bird is one of the smaller Canada Goose subspecies, it has a longer bill and subtly different head shape.
