Cacklers in Port Alberni

On 18 October, 2012, we encountered app. 350 Cackling Geese in the fields around Port Alberni, hanging out with app. 700 resident type Canada Geese. We also saw two juvenile Greater White-fronted Geese. No Snow Geese or dusky type Canada geese were observed.

Today, in Campbell RIver, I saw a Cackler with white streaks on its neck. Do you know why this happened?

Not really. Probably just abberant plumage.
