Looking closely the canadian looks like a Chinese goose cross especially in the body colour maybe worth looking up the history of it

The Canada Goose is a native goose of North America/Canada/Arctic areas.
It is a unique species, Branta canadensis, not a variation of any domesticated variety and definitely not a cross breed.
