The Day Of The Goose
Did You Know? - The Canada Goose (Branta canadensis) is a wild goose belonging to the genus Branta, which is native to arctic and temperate regions of North America, having a black head and neck, white patches on the face, and a brownish-gray body.
The black head and neck with white "chinstrap" distinguish the Canada Goose from all other goose species
Did You Know? - This species is 76?110 centimetres (30?43 in) long with a 127?180 centimetres (50?71 in) wingspan. The male usually weighs 3.2?6.5 kilograms (7.1?14 lb), and can be very aggressive in defending territory.
In recent years, Canada Geese populations in some areas have grown substantially, so much so that many consider them pests (for their droppings, the bacteria in their droppings, noise and confrontational behavior). This problem is partially due to the removal of natural predators and an abundance of safe, man-made bodies of water (such as on golf courses, public parks and beaches, and in planned communities).
