Canada Goose

(Branta canadensis)

    Canada geese are distributed across North America, including northern Mexico, and far outnumber other geese in most parts of the country. They are variable in size, from 25 to 45 inches long with wingspans of 43 to 60 inches. They are characterized by their black necks, white cheeks, and brownish-gray backs. In contrast, the Brant goose is rare outside the coasts of North America.
