PlantFiles is getting a new look! Just in time for spring, we're rolling out a new look for the best online plants database. It will also work with your smart phones and mobile devices, so now you can take it with you on garden center visits or botanical garden tours. Questions or comments? Please post them here.
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. :)
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.
