About

Aleutian Cackling Geese (Branta hutchinsii leucopareia) were once thought extinct until a surviving group was found in 1962, on Buldir Island, by Robert Jones. They look like most any Cackling Geese with a black head and neck with white cheeks, but a white ring at the base of the neck, and smaller in size.

Habitat & Range

Aleutian Cackling Goose winter in California and Oregon.
