Last Saturday night (2019-09-28, at about 1AM) I recorded several flocks of
geese flying over my backyard in Solvang, California (USA). I would expect
these to be Canada Goose, but they don't sound right for that (too high, no
honking). So now I'm wondering if these are in fact Cackling Goose,
which would be interesting given the size of the flock. Here is my best
recording:

Does anybody have any suggestions what these are, and why? Probably
(hopefully) we have to get to the subspecies level to sort this out. The
original .WAV file is 7MB and I'll be happy to email it to those
interested.

Thanks
