Canada Goose
Branta canadensis
The Canada Goose (Branta canadensis) nests across much of Canada and the northern United States and winters in the southern United States and parts of northern Mexico. It is a common and widespread species and one that is familiar to most people. These birds are often thought of as nuisances in some areas of the United States where they have taken up permanent residence in parks and other urban environments. The four shots at right were taken at Bosque del Apache N.W.R., Socorro Co., New Mexico, in November, 2006. The images were taken with a Canon EOS 1D Mark II and EF 100-400 F/4.5 - 5.6 L IS lens.
The two shots shown here show a family of Canada Geese (two adults with large young birds) at Benton Lake N.W.R., Cascade Co., Montana, in June, 2007. These shots were taken with a Canon EOS 1D Mark III and EF 600mm F/4 L IS lens and 2X extender.
The pair of Canada Geese shown here was wandering across the prairie on the Wichita Mountains N.W.R., Comanche Co., Oklahoma, in April, 2008. They may have been searching for a nest site. This shot was taken with a Canon EOS 1D Mark III and an EF 600mm F/4 L IS lens.
