INTERESTING FACTS

At least 11 subspecies of Canada Goose have been recognized and as of 2004 some of the smaller subspecies were designated their own species—the Cackling Goose. Researchers have identified about 13 different calls from Canada Geese. These vary including loud greeting/alarm calls and soft sounds from feeding geese. While their eggs are incubating females lose their flight feathers, so they cannot fly until after their eggs hatch. A group of geese has many collective nouns, including a "blizzard", "chevron", "knot", "plump", and "string" of geese.
