Canada Goose

Posted by

The big, black-necked Canada Goose with its signature white chinstrap mark is a familiar and widespread bird of fields and parks. Thousands of “honkers” migrate north and south each year, filling the sky with long V-formations. But as lawns have proliferated, more and more of these grassland-adapted birds are staying put in urban and suburban areas year-round, where some people regard them as pests.

Canada Goose is familiar to us as well. There used to be more of them around towns, but now the goose geese have taken over space. There may be hundreds of them in the same area, and they are no longer liked.

And pests they are. Some people use dogs, swans and electrical devices to chase them away.

A wonderful image of this big guy. We have so many of them around where I live. I love watching them fly in formation this time of year.
