Goose-like banjo tune

I'm trying to identify a bluegrass-style banjo tune that was meant to sound like the honks of geese. I seem to remember the recording I heard was by the brother of a more famous player.

Argh, found it, it was Lost Gander.

Your question has not been in vain, that was charming! Thanks.

Coincidentally, a question came up about that on Banjo Hangout today, too: Lost Gander tuning - Discussion Forums - Banjo Hangout.

(here's the late Mike Seeger [half brother of Pete] playing it: Lost Gander. That sounds like two-finger thumb lead style, not bluegrass.)

Tap foot.
Nod head.
