Canada Goose (Branta canadensis)
Sunday 22 March
I don’t imagine anyone in the world is unable to identify this goose which in the last week have reappearing the fields and skies around here. Theres are small areas of grass where the snow has melted and that’s what brings them. I have seen flocks in ‘V’-formation varying from a half dozen to 80+ in recent dayts and a good hundred or more are on the Macdonald campus farm fields. This chap has two legs but had withdrawmn one into its feathers to get a bit of warmth into his toes.
