Canada Goose


(Branta canadensis)

Widespread across most of North America, Canada Goose is the species familiar to almost everyone and is numerous everywhere in parks, fields, and golf courses where many consider them a nuisance because of their noise and copious droppings. Their honking is a familiar sound as they fly overhead. There are several subspecies of varying sizes, including the parvipes subspecies of “Lesser Canada Goose” which can be 40% smaller than the largest common Canada Geese.
