Canada Goose (branta canadensis)
On a December morning at the park, I noticed several geese that were eating the apples that had fallen on the ground, it was comical watching them pick-up, twist, shake, drop, and repeat. I must say it was an effective effort!!
San Rafael Park in Reno, Nevada
This big "Honker" is among our best-known waterfowl. In many regions, flights of Canada Geese passing over in V-formation-northbound in spring, southbound in fall-are universally recognized as signs of the changing seasons. Once considered a symbol of wilderness, this goose has adapted well to civilization, nesting around park ponds and golf courses; in a few places, it has even become something of a nuisance. Local forms vary greatly in size, and the smallest ones are now regarded as a separate species, Cackling Goose.
