"Ross's Goose"
Ross's Goose:    The Ross's Goose was named after Bernard R. Ross, a Hudson's Bay Company factor at Canada's Fort Simpson between 1858 to 1862. According to the online "Dictionary of Canadian Biography" (2013),   "Rossís primary significance is in the field of natural history rather than the fur trade. Like many company men he contributed much to the early scientific knowledge of the northwest. While at Fort Simpson he made valuable collections of mammalia, insects, and birds, forwarding specimens to the Smithsonian Institution in Washington, the Royal Scottish Museum in Edinburgh, and the British Museum in London. Rossís Goose was named after him in 1861."
