Description Technical Specs Extended Information
 
A flock of geese flying in V formation is a sign of changing seasons—a sight that also symbolizes Canada’s untamed grandeur.

The Canada Goose (Branta canadensis) is arguably the most widely known goose species in North America that’s readily recognized by its distinctive black head and neck with white “chinstrap”. Males are generally larger that females, growing 76 to 110 cm (30 to 43 in) long with a wingspan of 127 to 170 cm (50 to 67 in).

Couples are known to mate for life and nurture their young for several months after hatching. Their nests are usually located in elevated areas near streams and ponds.

The Great Lakes region is home to a large population of Canada Geese. In spring and autumn, the goose’s distinctive honking call fills the air, alerting residents along migratory flight-paths of the wondrous sight passing overhead.
