Dagney, I was subtly (apoligies if I wasn't so subtle) trying to make the point that many many people refer to them as Canadian Geese. Rather than be picky about silly details that most people wouldn't care about, most people would just overlook them and carry on with life without further silly controversy. I apologise if I've ruffled some feathers. I probably should have left this issue alone, and simply carried on.

Kendall's right and so was my dad, I made the slip!

Say's Who??  the sixty-plus years that I've been around here, they have always been referred to as Canadian Geese.

It's Canada Geese - not Canadian geese...
