Canada Goose Facts
Canada Geese are common across the country and probably quite familiar. Their V-shaped flight pattern and loud honking is common in city parks. They are primarily grazers, feeding on vegetation most often in marshlands. Male and females are thought to mate for life. They can be quite aggressive and while walking through a park, you often find out if you get to close. Foxes, raccoons, crows, ravens and bears are common predators to Canadian Geese eggs. That said the larger male defends its nest site with vigor. There are 11 sub-species of the Canada Goose. The Giant Canada Goose was thought to be extinct by 1950, but its numbers have a slowly rebounded.
