Two Canada Geese

This past winter a flock of geese could be found out at Starrigavan. As best I could tell, they were all Canada Geese, though some of them seemed distinctly smaller than others. The picture above shows two of the mis-matched geese. What stands out to me is the distinctly shorter neck and maybe smaller head (though I think the goose in front is looking slightly away from me, which makes it a little harder to judge accurately). Despite this, I think the bird in front still qualifies as a Lesser Canada Goose rather than a Cackling Goose. I would be happy to be corrected, however.
