INTERESTING FACTS

Down to less than 500 birds in the 1970s, the Aleutian Cackling goose is a success story in waterfowl management. Presently, population estimates based on observations of neck-banded Aleutian Cackling geese during winter 2006-07 was 118,700, 13% greater than the previous year. Due to their smaller size, Cackling Geese (especially B.h. minima) display a faster wing beat than Canada Geese and their wings appear longer proportionally to their body size in flight. The smallest form of the Cackling Goose is only a quarter the size of the "Giant Canada Goose" subspecies. A group of geese has many collective nouns, including a "blizzard", "chevron", "knot", "plump", and "string" of geese.
