Could be Aleutes, but cacks sometimes get the ring also. Not as pronounced as the aleutians though....nice bag regardless. What vicinity is your land?

Of course if they were cacks or aleutians, you may have taken more than your daily limit of 1 small canada. Be careful...

Here's a couple of pics of Aleutians to help on ID. I once asked a biologist how they could tell a cackler from an Aleutina goose. He said they had trouble too, Every waterfowl ID book I've looked in said it was hard to tell and gave no definitive way to tell them apart.

Taverner's, like I said on the other board.

In the valley they might have been Aleuts but the Petaluma river would be way out of their way. I'd bet they were migrating down with some Westerns. They commonly mix in Oregon.

At Cibola we got several Honkers that had some of the white feathers on their necks. Some similar to the bird you got. Others with more white, almost like a ring. These were larger birds not Aleutians. One bird my friend got had a white stripe across its forehead.                  Fubar
