FACTS ABOUT CANADA GEESE●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●


● The Canada goose (Branta canadensis) is native to arctic and temperate regions of North America, but it also occasionally migrates to northern Europe, and has been introduced to Britain, New Zealand, and other temperate regions.

● The female is generally 10% smaller in linear dimensions than its male counterpart, and has a different honk.

● Most European populations are non-migratory, but those in more northerly parts of Sweden and Finland migrate to the North Sea and Baltic coasts.

● The calls overhead from large groups of Canada geese flying in V-shaped formation signal the transitions into spring and autumn.

● Canada geese are primarily herbivores, although they sometimes eat small insects and fish. Their diet includes green vegetation and grains.

● During the second year of their lives, Canada geese find a mate. They are monogamous, and most couples stay together all of their lives.

● During the breeding season, the adults lose their flight feathers for 20–40 days, regaining flight at about the same time as their goslings start to fly.

● The offspring do not leave their parents until after the spring migration, when they return to their birthplace.

● Their autumn migration can be seen from September to the beginning of November. The early migrants have a tendency to spend less time at rest stops and go through the migration much faster. The later birds usually spend more time at rest stops.

● Some geese will return to the same nesting ground year after year and lay eggs with their mate, raising them in the same way each year.

● The life span in the wild of geese that survive to adulthood ranges 10–24 years.
