More About Goose

  • Goose (Branta canadensis) is one of the largest members of the Anatidae (waterfowl) family.
  • Males tend to be bigger than females though the two sexes' physical traits are identical.
  • Adult geese have grayish brown wings, backs, sides and breasts; black tails, feet, legs, bills, and heads; and long black necks with distinctive white cheek patches that usually cover part of the throat.
  • A goose has a very strong neck so if you do want to carry one, pick it up by the neck and put it under your arm.
  • Geese are very hardy. They rarely catch diseases and hardly require any care. They just need lots of water and room to roam.
  • These birds generally begin nesting at the age of three and once a mate has been chosen, the birds are monogamous for life.
  • Each pair raises 4 goslings per year, so over a lifetime, a pair may raise 32 to 40 goslings.
  • Goslings, young geese, are a light yellow color with greenish-gray heads when hatched.
  • Geese are very cute when they're young (aren't all animals?) and as a pet they make a great lawnmower and watchdog.
  • Geese are also very noisy. A gander has a high, shrill voice, a goose has a harsh, hoarse cry, and both have a reputation for fierce wing flapping.
  • Ganders are more aggressive than geese but usually only when protecting eggs.
  • Resident geese flight range: 100 -200 miles to find food, water, and safety.
  • Migratory geese do not become resident geese unless they are injured.
