We have a few of these that live and breed in our yard. I have pictures of 7 of them, but there could be more. The smallest one I found is an inch, and is pretty much solid black. We have larger juveniles and full sized adults as well.

Description

Note the overall small size relative to the B. c. moffiti Canada Geese, including short neck and small bill. However, the head is wedge-shaped due to the sloping (vs. steep in Cackling) forehead, which is characteristic of Canada Goose. See below for more information:
