Dusky Canada geese (B.c. occidentalis) are the darkest colored Canada geese in Alaska. Duskies average 6 to 8 pounds ( kg), but males can weigh 10 pounds ( kg) or more in spring.

Like all Canada geese, Aleutian Canada geese have a black head and neck with a white cheek patch, brown wings and back, a grayish-brown breast and belly, a white rump patch, and black. Cackling Geese in the wild can live 10 - 25 years.

Captive birds that are well taken care of could possibly live to 35 or even 40 years.
