Grouping Waterfowl / Herbivore
Nicknames Canadian Geese, Honkers, Lawn Cow, Winged Cow, @#$%^&*!
Best Known For Their distinct HONK. Unique coloration patterns with white cheek plates. V flight pattern. Aggressive nest guarding. Leaving green tootsie rolls on playing fields, parking lots & walkways.
Life Span 15 to 20 years.
Mating Season Geese become reproductively active their 3rd year of life. Mating occurs for life. Nest building and courtship begin in February and can extend well into April/May.
Reproductive Details 4 to 10 eggs with 5 to 6 on average. Eggs are 2-3 times the size of a chicken egg and white in color. One egg is laid per day until all eggs have been placed in the nest. Incubation begins at the same time for all eggs. Typically 1 clutch per year. Sometimes will re-lay eggs if nest is destroyed early in the incubation period.
Dispersal Family unit stays together through summer and some dispersal occurs through the fall. Resident geese do not migrate.
Habitat Open turf grass areas are preferred for feeding locations. Open waterways including rivers, ponds and lakes are preferred locations for protection from predators. Also, athletic fields, business parks, retention and detention pond areas and corporate campuses. Geese are very at home in our suburban environments. They are commonly seen nesting and living in housing subdivisions and business parks with detention ponds.
