The Nene-nui (Great Nene or Woodwalking), Branta hylobadistes, is an extinct species of goose that once inhabited Maui and possibly Kauai, Oahu and perhaps Molokai in the Hawaiian Islands. It is known from a large number of sub fossil bones (several thousand bones from many dozens of individuals) found in Holocene cave sediments. The Nene-nui evolved from the Canada Goose which migrated to the islands half a million years ago and adapted to the Pacific's tropical environment. This...

The Red-breasted Goose (Branta ruficollis) is a goose of the genus Branta, closely related to the Brent Goose (Branta bernicla). All the species of the Branta genus are distinguished by their general dark sooty color, relieved in some by way by white of greater or less purity, and as a distinction from the members of the genus Anser, which are known as grey geese. The Red-breasted Goose is found in arctic Europe, often close to nests of large birds of prey, such as Peregrine Falcons....

The Brent Goose (Branta bernicla) is a goose of the genus Branta, known in North America as Brant. The spelling "Brant" is the original one, with "Brent" being a later folk-etymological idea that it was derived from a classical Greek waterbird name brenthos. It is in fact onomatopoeic, derived from the guttural call note of the species. This small goose measures about 60 cm long and sports a short, stubby bill. The short tail (the shortest of any goose) is pure white underneath and black...

The Hawaiian Goose or Nene (Branta sandvicensis) is a species of goose found only on the Hawaiian Islands. It shares a recent common ancestor with Branta canadensis, the Canada Goose. The official bird of the State of Hawaii, the Nene is exclusively found in the wild of the islands of Maui, Kauai and Hawaii. A larger and possibly flightless extinct species, the Nene-nui (Branta hylobadistes) was present in prehistoric times on Maui; related, but hitherto undescribed forms also occurred on...

The Cackling Goose (Branta hutchinsii), also known as Lesser or Small Canada or Canadian Goose in North America, belongs to the genus of black geese Branta, which contains species with black plumage, distinguishing them from the grey Anser species. The black head and neck with white "chinstrap" distinguish this goose from all except the larger Canada Goose (Branta canadensis) and the similarly-sized Barnacle Goose (B. leucopsis). There are up to 5 subspecies of Cackling Goose, of varying...
