Artist's Description

Featured in the Live, Love, Dream group on 3 April 2010

During the second year of their lives, Canada Geese find a mate. They are monogamous, and most couples stay together all of their lives. If one is killed, the other may find a new mate. The female lays 3–8 eggs and both parents protect the nest while the eggs incubate, but the female spends more time at the nest than the male. Known egg predators include Arctic Foxes, Northern Raccoons, Red Foxes, large gulls, Common Raven, American Crows and bears. During this incubation period, the adults lose their flight feathers, so they cannot fly until their eggs hatch after 25–28 days.

Location: Taken at FortWhyte Alive, our Nature Center on the southwest edge of Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada.

Camera Details: Canon EOS Digital Rebel XTi, 55-250mm Zoom Lens, Aperture exp 7.1, Shutter speed 1/400, ISO 100.
