Cackling Goose in Newfoundland - Fake News

Spent the last two days in the Codroy Valley in SW Newfoundland looking through waterfowl, especially geese. There were no rare geese except for this Cackler. It was exciting to come across this distinctive form of the Canada Goose that in 2004 gained full species rank! yah- right. What is wrong with distinctive subspecieses?  Anyhow... here is the bird.  

It was about 2/3 the size of the regular Canada Geese. It was also paler grayish. Always easy to pick out by the grayness when you could not see other features.  The short stubby bill and squared off head were classic Cackler.  The stocky short neck was usually apparent. A white ring around base of black neck was a bonus as only some of the Richardson's race of Cackler show this. Richardson's is the common widespread Cackler. The other three forms are Alaskan only breeders.

Below are pics of the bird. It was genuinely cute.  But for those with similar feelings on giving this form of Canada Goose species status I invite you to join the organization call SOS (Save Our Subspecies).  We also protest other species splits like Bicknells' Thrush and Salt Marsh Sparrow.

  3. My name is KARLA LOVELL from Texas in the USA. For a very long time, i was deep into financial mess untill a friend of mine told me about CONSUMER LOAN FIRM and how she was helped by the company with an Xmas loan at a very low interest rate of 2% and better repayment schedule.She further stressed that they can help me out of my financial difficulties too.Though i never believed her because i have tried lots of BANKS/CREDIT lenders who could not help me out because of my poor credit score.She advised i should give it a try to be convinced,so i mailed them via consumerloanfirm@gmail.com .Behold it went well and after my explanation, they took me through the loan process and granted me the $67,000,00 as applied with ease on 26th of October 2017, i have a business of mine and my xmas bills became very much easy.

  4. HOW I BECAME A VICTOR AFTER SO MANY FAILED ATTEMPT OF GETTING A LOAN.

    I feel so blessed and fulfilled. I've been reluctant in applying for a loan i heard about online because everything seems too good to be true, but i was convinced & shocked when my friend at my place of work got a loan from Progresive Loan INC. & we both confirmed it and i also went ahead to apply, today am a proud owner of my company and making money for my family and a happy mom. Well i'm Annie Joe by name from Pauls Valley, Oklahoma. As a single mom with three kids it was hard to get a job that could take care of me and my kids and I had so much bills to pay and to make it worst I had bad credit so i couldn't obtain a loan from any bank. I had an ideal to start a business as an hair stylist but had no capital to start, Tried all type of banks but didn't work out until I was referred by my co-worker to a godsent lender advertising to give a loan at 2% interest rate. I sent them a mail using their official email address (progresiveloan@yahoo.com) and I got a reply immediately and my loan was approved, and I was directed to the Bank site where I withdrawed my loan directly to my account. To cut the story short am proud of my hair stylist company and promise to testify to the world how my life was transformed.. If you are in need of any kind of loan, i advise you contact Progresive Loan INC and be financially lifted Email: progresiveloan@yahoo.com OR Call/Text +1(603) 786-7565
