Canada’s Goose Soon to Go

Mates for life and divorce is unknown! In a few months as the season changes the Canada Geese (all 11 species) will be well into their migration South. They travel to the southern US and some will even venture into Mexico. A few dumb ones will actually stay here finding open water on the Bow RIver near Calgary.

Night Flight is common.

This pair started with 12 egg’s, 11 hatched and now only three goslings have survived so far.

Many of the young are plucked by predators as their inability to fly makes them as available as a sitting duck.
