The Canadian goose is most likely the most well known goose in North America. But most people do not know that there are 12 different kinds! The giant Canadian goose is the biggest. You cannot really tell the different kinds of Canadian geese accept by how large or small they are. In fact, they are so alike they actually fly in a flock together! These birds are one of the few birds that make noises while flying. Their nicknames are Canadian honkers for this reason.
