The Canada goose is a large wild water bird with webbed feet. They have black heads, a long neck with white patches on the the face and butt, and a brown body. They are very distinct. They are numerous in North America and are native to arctic and temperate regions. These birds are dabblers in water and grazers in field areas. They can often be seen flying in pairs or in a “V” formation. There are about 11 sub-species, although they all have a similar look. Generally the geese are smaller as you move north and darker as you move west. Canada geese feed on grasses, leaves, berries, seeds, or grains.

Canada geese are very abundant in pond areas where I live. Usually they are in groups, I’ve seen up to 300 in an area on a morning walk.

  1. I also love Canadian Geese. Here on the river I hear and see them most mornings and I never tire of their presence in flight – in the northeast they are harbingers of spring returning in April to open ponds… Many folks dislike geese because “poop” gets in their perfect lawns. I’d rather have geese than a perfect lawn any day! The funny thing is that some folks don’t get it that this poop makes excellent fertilizer!
