I was in a taxidermist shop today and saw the owner working on a goose which looked to me like a small canadian but was told it wasn't. It was marked the same but was small and had a short neck. He said they got off course and were not normally in Maryland. Can anyone tell me more about these birds :?:

Canada Goose is the correct name. "Canadian" implies that is where all Canada Geese come from.FYI

Yup it's definitely a Canadian alright!
It's a Cackler. There are tons over here in Washington! The limit is 4 geese per day over here and my kill ratio is about 3cacklers every goose hunt. The majority of geese over here (atleast in my area) are Taverners & Cacklers (not crackling for the books). The honk just like all other Canada's, but not a deep honking. It's a more high pitched like a kid goose. :lol: Hope my reply gives a little better idea.

Most likely not a Cackler being it is in MD. Cacklers are out west--Pacific Flyway as I recall. More likely a Hutchinson or Richardson.

Maryland just requires a general hunting license, a Md migratory stamp, a federal migratory stamp, and hip card and you are ready to go. I will take a picture of this bird when the taxidermist gets it mounted>
