I Trying To Get My Duck In The Row But I Got Geese Instead!

Canada Goose and Goslings

What did the triangle say to the circle?

Your pointless!

Interesting Fact:  In spring and summer, geese concentrate their feeding on grasses and sedges, including skunk cabbage leaves and eelgrass. During fall and winter, they rely more on berries and seeds, including agricultural grains, and seem especially fond of blueberries. They’re very efficient at removing kernels from dry corn cobs. Two subspecies have adapted to urban environments and graze on domesticated grasses year round. ( https://www.allaboutbirds.org/guide/Canada_Goose/lifehistory )

  1. I live in New Jersey, and when I was a boy, the only way you were going to see a Canada goose was in a picture book or at the annual Sportsman’s Show. Now they’re all over the state, year-round, in huge numbers. I do wonder how that happened.

    • That is quite interesting, I definitely agree with you that they are all over the state. Crazy how fast they are multiplying. Thank you very much for stopping by and sharing your thoughts with us. Happy Blogging! 🙂

  2. Skunk cabbage leaves? Those geese must have more refined tastes than mine. I’ve tasted them and don’t recommend them.

  3. Not only they adapted to the urban environment, but they seem to thrive – at least in Toronto area🙂

    • Yep, they do adapt quite well. Thank you very much for stopping by and sharing your thoughts with us. Happy Blogging! 🙂
