A loop around the lake at Hendrickson Park revealed two different Cackling 
Geese among the wintering flocks of Canadas. One is a recognizable, returning 
individual, back for (at least) its fourth consecutive winter alongside a small 
Canada Goose that it is always closely associated with. Perhaps they are a 
mated pair contributing hybrids to the wild mix of variation in this species 
complex. Notes on the specific field marks for both Cacklers are included with 
my eBird checklist, for anyone who wants a more detailed search image to follow 
up.
