Canada Goose

Canada Goose is a common breeder from the interior of Canada and Alaska south through most of the U.S., nesting near wetlands of many sort, even in urban settings. It winters on farmland, wetlands and on golf courses.

None migratory populations in suburban areas are introduced in large flocks. Aberrant individuals with white flecking are often seen.

INTERESTING FACTS

  • At least 11 subspecies of Canada Goose have been recognized and as of 2004 some of the smaller subspecies were designated their own species—the Cackling Goose.
  • While their eggs are incubating females lose their flight feathers, so they cannot fly until after their eggs hatch.
  • Researchers have identified about 13 different calls from Canada Geese. These vary including loud greeting/alarm calls and soft sounds from feeding geese.
  • A group of geese has many collective nouns, including a “blizzard”, “chevron”, “knot”, “plump”, and “string” of geese.

My goal is to get my name out there among the vast ocean of Natural photographers. To be known for my skill with a Point & Shoot~

My images are not photo shopped. They have only been adjusted with basic sharpening, contrasting & saturation techniques. I believe that in order to appreciate Nature, you have to capture it as it is, naturally.
