The Canada Goose: A Natural History | Scienceray
excerpt from above:
Quote:
These migrating birds are found in all but the most extreme northern parts of Canada. They tend to nest in roughly the same area each year, usually close to where their parents nested. But after the nesting season some Canada geese will spend the summer traveling great distances, as if touring within a very large defined area, while other flocks will stay in the same 20 square mile area the whole summer. More and more researchers are finding that Canada geese stay in northern climes even during the winter. They are found in the most isolated and in the most heavily settled areas in North America. They love water, short grass and clovers, and, incidentally, so do humans. Like Raccoons, The Canada geese, especially the common subfamily known as the Giant geese, Honkers or Black geese, have carved out a living space in areas heavily populated by humans, sharing our lakes, ponds, parks, and fields of grain and hay...
