Yes, that sounds right. (Marshall Iliff emailed me as well and he agrees with you.) Where I live (Santa Barbara County, CA) we don't have groups of feral Greater White-fronted and in the winter we have only a few of them, which is way I did not consider GWf. It turns out, though, that in fall

These sound like Greater White-fronteds, perhaps some feral Anser geese that are non-native. They are definitely not Cackling Geese. Dave Irons Beaverton, OR Sent from my iPhone On Oct 2, 2019, at 6:24 PM, Wim van Dam mailto:wim.van@gmail.com>> wrote: Last Saturday night (2019-09-28, at

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,
