Lonely Canadian Geese - Nature and Wildlife 31

Fig 01- A Lonely Canadian geese

Yes, a Canadian geese is one of migratory, birds visit our city when freezing temperature in the North.

However, at least, since 10 years ago, I saw several of them stay all seasons, hence, it could be mean that these geese live “permanently” in the lakes, especially urban lakes of our state or cities.

I just wonder that why some geese have chosen to live in our southern state?

Temporary answer that they might able to adjust to warmer temperature or other reasons.

As reported by “digbr” (2016), some reasonable reasons are:

- availability of food

- decent habitats

- many lakes and ponds are available for nesting during breeding seasons.

- less predators

- migration makes geese stress.

The Canadian geese was believed to disappear in USA once, found in Minnesota in 1950. Then, introduced and conserved in many states across USA.


Fig 03- A geese tried to find food.

Two species of Canadian geese:

- Branta canadensis, well known as Canadian geese

- Branta hutchinsii, also recognized as Cackling goose.


We mainly found giant Canadian geese in our city, Branta canadensis maxima, with wingspan could reach 7.3 feet (2.2 meter).

Some residents feel intimidating with growing population of Canadian geese in several parts of the city. Male Canadian geese is aggressive during breeding seasons.

Have you encountered Canadian geese during breeding seasons? What do you think?

  1. Hello,
    Great photos of the Geese. They seem to live here year round now, I guess as long as they can find food. Take care, enjoy your weekend!

  6. Maybe some birds know there's something wrong with them thus they don't want to travel very far. If they have all their needs taken care of, why fly away when they're not up to it.

  8. The males are protective of the females on the nests. They are couples and work together. Some stay here all year long too.

  12. Tanza, It is estimated that there are over 8 million geese in the USA at this point. They love grass and man-made ponds and pools and if there is food, or people feed them, they don't bother migrating. Several years ago in mid-winter my wife and I visited a flock on an almost completely frozen pond in a cemetery in Chicago. People were feeding them and they just didn't see a need to migrate. Stay Safe and Take Care, Big Daddy Dave

  17. There are also a lot of these geese in the Netherlands. Sometimes the geese remain in one area all year round.
    I hope for this goose that he also got some company from other geese.

  20. The same thing happens here with some migratory birds, I think that climate change causes some animals to change their patterns.
