There were fabulous deals to be had, and I was a seasoned online shopper. Or so I thought.

In retrospect, my ’seasoning’ this month may have been poultry seasoning.

You see, I found or thought I had found the motherlode of deals on one of those ads that pops up on Facebook. A Canada Goose Expedition Parka, regularly $700, on sale for only $287.

I clicked on the link and it took me to something called the Winter Parka Outlet. The site had the Canada Goose logo. In fact, the Canada Goose logo and trademarks were all over the site, together with other trademarks such as ‘McAfee Secure’ and very professional photographs of people wearing the iconic coats in all sorts of cold environments.

There was free shipping and no tax, presumably because the GST/PST/HST was incorporated in the price. Clearly, one of Canada Goose’s subsidiaries or dealers was liquidating inventory in conjunction with Black Friday and Christmas. How could I lose? What a deal! So I went ahead and bought a coat.

I filled out the online information so the vendor had my residential address for credit card billing purposes, and my office address for delivery purposes, just like Apple, Amazon and other online sales companies do. My order was confirmed by e mail a few moments later in the usual way.

“What was your first clue that things weren’t quite as they seemed, Sherlock?”

Well, I guess no tax and free shipping could have been a giveaway. Maybe I should have paid attention to the keywords on the website’s landing page: Canada Goose Cheap Sale.

But then I received an e mail later that day that read, in broken English:

“Thanks for order on our website. There are two different addresses in your order. But according to credit card company’s secure policy, it must be same information between your billing address and your parcel’s shipping address. If you really want to ship your order to your shipping address, please e mail us your scanned files of fronts of your ID card and credit card.”

Oh oh, I thought to myself. I’ve been scammed.

I’m not aware of any company that wants a scanned copy of my credit card and my driver’s licence or my passport to enable them to deliver something to my office. Identity theft, fake goods and “you idiot” immediately came to mind. I reached for the dunce cap. And the phone. Didn’t you know Canada Goose never sells online or at discount? I’ll cancel the card right away.”

Thankfully, my card was cancelled before the order was processed.

There are many learning lessons to be taken from this story for vendors and consumers alike.

1. Online vendors should never ask for, or be sent, scanned copies of your credit card or your ID. If they do, you risk your identify being stolen if you send it.

2. Do some quick research on the brand. A quick Google search might reveal that the manufacturer never discounts or even sells online, so an online vendor drastically reducing the price of goods that the manufacturer doesn’t even sell online might tip you off that something isn’t quite right.

3. Your research might also show that consumers are reporting incidents of online vendors selling counterfeit goods using very professional looking web graphics, and of course, the manufacturer’s logos and trademarks.

4. Check the FAQ page. Are the answers written in poor or grammatically deficient English?

5. Look at the ‘official site.’ How different is it? Are the photographs and graphics the same, or do they look different?

I discovered (better late than never) that Canada Goose, does a good job of alerting consumers to counterfeit Canada Goose products here, comparing its products to counterfeit ones using useful images and information.

“Made illegally in factories in Asia,” Canada Goose says, ” the fake jackets are found on many rogue websites as well as in the flea markets of Shanghai, Beijing and Bangkok. Counterfeiting is illegal. It often funds organized crime and counterfeit factories in regions where labour standards are lax often employ child labour. Counterfeiting is not only illegal, but also dangerous. After analyzing the content of counterfeit jackets, we know that instead of the sanitized, Canadian down used by Canada Goose, counterfeiters often use feather mulch or other fillers. These materials are often coated in bacteria, fungus or mildew, posing significant health risks to unsuspecting consumers. As well, raccoon, dog or other unknown animal hair may be used in place of our functional coyote fur ruff. Even more frightening is that for a person in cold climate, an authentic Canada Goose parka could mean the difference between life and death. Without real down and fur, the chance of frostbite or freezing becomes a real possibility.”

Giant Canada Goose

In the 1950s B. c. maxima was considered extinct. Fish and Wildlife Service, 2005). Southern populations of B. c. maxima are sedentary whereas northern populations are migratory and winter mostly in the Tennessee and Mississippi valleys (Mlodinow et al., 2006; Mowbray et al., 2002). Observers in Arizona where most Canada Geese belong to the moffitti (= Great Basin) subspecies should, therefore, recognize the differences separating B. c. moffitti from B. c. maxima.

On 22 Dec. Smith observed a large Canada Goose in a flock of B. c. moffitti at the Scottsdale Pavilions ponds (Maricopa Co., AZ; Fig. 2: Foreground bird). This bird presents characteristics consistent with B. c. maxima (see below) and may constitute the first documented record of this subspecies in Arizona.

Figure 2. Scottsdale Pavilions, Scottsdale, AZ; 22 Dec. 2007. Giant Canada Goose, B. c. maxima (foreground bird). Note pale breast and large white cheek patch extending to base of bill. Smith.

Here we present some ways to separate typical B. c. maxima and B. c. moffitti (Mlodinow et al., 2006; Mowbray et al., 2002). We emphasize that birds belonging to various Canada Goose subspecies can look very similar and in some cases interbreed (Mowbray et al., 2002), resulting in individuals showing intermediate characteristics (see below). Thus, only archetypical birds can be safely identified and identification must rely on a combination of characters. B. c. maxima and B. c. moffitti can be differentiated as follows:

Size. B. c. maxima is, on average, larger (average body weight almost 5 kg) than B. c. moffitti (less than 4 kg). Note that both subspecies exhibit a wide range of individual variation in body mass. Thus, especially from a distance, the two subspecies can appear to be the same size (Fig. 3).

Figure 3. McCormick Ranch, Scottsdale AZ; 2 February 2008. Two Giant Canada Geese (G) swimming along with B. c. moffitti (M). On B. c. maxima, note large size, extensive white cheek patch, and pale forehead. Photo/P. Deviche.

Proportions. B. c. maxima is longer necked than B. c. moffitti.

Plumage color. On average, B. c. maxima has paler underparts (especially the breast, which looks almost white) than B. c. moffitti. This difference is accentuated by the fact in B. c. 1 3). Even though the average color difference is quite distinct, caution must be exercised because plumage color in B. c. maxima and B. c. moffitti probably overlap completely (S. Mlodinow, personal communication).

Head color and pattern.

B. c. maxima typically shows more exposed white on the cheeks than other forms (Figs. 1 3). The white patch in B. c. maxima extends higher up the cheeks and toward the crown than in other subspecies and in contrast to B. c. moffitti, this patch contacts the base of the bill.

Most B. c. maxima individuals have a white band on the forehead between the black crown and bill. It should be pointed out that B. c. moffitti and other Canada Goose subspecies as well as some Cackling Geese can have this band which, therefore, is in and by itself not diagnostic.

B. c. maxima has a proportionally larger and more massive bill than B. c. moffitti.

Voice. B. c. maxima reportedly has a deeper voice than B. c. moffitti.

On 30 Dec. 2007 at McCormick Ranch (Scottsdale, AZ), P. Smith on 22 Dec. 2007. This bird is noticeably larger and longer necked than B. c. moffitti and has a whiter breast and pale underparts (Fig. 4: Swimming; Fig. 5: Flying). It also has a large white cheek patch and a pale forehead band (Fig. 6).

Figure 6. Scottsdale Pavilions, Scottsdale, AZ; 30 Dec. 2007. Detail of the head of the foreground bird shown on Fig. 4. Note that the white cheek patch does not reach the base of the bill. Photo/P. Deviche.

The above features are consistent with the 30 Dec. 2007 goose being a B. c. maxima. However, the pale forehead band of this bird is poorly defined compared to that of typical Giant Canada Goose (compare Fig. 6 with Figs. 2 and 3). In addition, the white cheek patch of the 30 Dec. 2007 bird does not appear to contact the base of the bill as is typical of Giant Canada Goose. Therefore, this goose is an atypical B. c. maxima or perhaps an intergrade between this form and B. c. moffitti.

The origin of Giant Canada Geese in Arizona is unknown. No introduction program for this subspecies was ever implemented in the state (M. Rabe, AZ Game and Fish Department; personal communication) and local aviculturists apparently do not or at least rarely keep this form in captivity (J. Badman, personal communication). Thus, B. c. maxima in Arizona presumably are of wild origin, but it cannot be excluded that they descend from introduced out of state stocks.

Field observers in Arizona are encouraged to focus on the plumage and structural characteristics of large wintering Canada Geese they encounter and to document their sightings photographically. In doing so they have an opportunity to advance the understanding of the variability in these traits that exists within and between White cheeked Goose subspecies. (2004).

En kort oversigt over mænds vinterjakker

Når det ser ud til drenge, skal de også have nogle fantastiske par jeans Canada Goose Vest Dame og khakis og nogle bukser i solide farver, så det kan. De mærker, der specialiserer sig i bare børn, vokser i popularitet og berygtelse og kan være bredt placeret på internettet og i udvalgte traditionelle kæder. Teenage er dette, når enkeltpersoner er meget opmærksomme på udseende og virkelig ønsker at virke for trendy og stilfuld.

Men hvorfor har disse Long Island-gæs været så mange og så vedholdende varer den sidste? Som nævnt i tidligere blog har gæserne på Ny mistet en masse værdifuldt fodringstid under snevejrene, der blanketed øen i marts. De kæmper for at genopbygge deres overskydende fedt som forberedelse til deres lange migrationer. Samtidig genoplives kvindelige bosætningsgæser også deres larders, så de kan være tilstrækkelige til opbevaring i de 28 dage, de vil bruge til at inkubere deres æg i april. De vil spise lidt når de sidder Canada Goose Coats på salg reden.

Jeg foretrækker noget, jeg kan vaske og uden fuzzy stoffer, der tiltrækker hest og katthår, og værre. En passende nylonoverflade kan tørres af hesteskov og så videre.

I 1973 klatrede både Eric og Tom Postle Grand Teton i Wyoming. Tom deltog i Marmot klubben. Inden for foråret 1974 åbnede et par mænd deres butik i Colorado og hedde deres butik ‘Marmot Mountain Works’. I mellemtiden registrerede de formelt emblemmærket-Marnot. I begyndelsen af ​​løbende forretning levede de et hardcore liv. Selv kunne ikke holde potten Canada Goose Coats priser madlavning. Så i den vinter besluttede de midlertidigt at adskille og skabe levevis ved at lære langrend.

Spørgsmålet om mænds frakker i dette land er tilbøjelig til at være, at de mest effektive priser af topkvalitetscoats er udfordrende at erhverve. Jeg finder de fleste mænd, disse lette peacoats, og alle, der føjer dem til dem, så helt sikkert kolde. Effektivt er jeg nu begejstret at jeg har en russisk ushanka hat svaret i E. Petersberg, at han er utrolig varm og trendy til træner. Jeg søger fremad med at bære den med min North Encounter cardigan.

Snesgæs er hvide med sorte vingefører. Flyvning med det bliver den blå fase. Den blå fase er ofte en mørk gås med et hvidt hoved og en nakke. Ved en lejlighed betragtede forskere sneen og den blå som separate arter, selv om de nu klassificeres blandt arten med to farvetoner.

Mænds smykker, ligesom kvinder, er særligt personlige. Dette har mindre relateret alder og design og mere at gøre med, hvad du kan lide, hvad der passer til hvor du kan arbejde og hænge ud, kommer med, hvad der er bestået din beslutning. En ung mand, der modtager sin familiering på dagen for hans gymnasium, kan bære det hele livet (som både punky sport og dragt). En frisk mand simpelthen ingen forpligtelse synes skarp kan Canada Goose Jakke have en ægte kærlighed til manchetknapper, som hun også vil bære med ham i hele sit liv.
