Canada Gosling day out on the trail

Did you know that the correct name for these geese are Canada Geese not “Canadian Geese”??? This is true! Did you also know they find one mate around their second year of their lives and monogamously mate for life (unless one dies–then they’ll find another love)?! They’re also very protective of their young if you’ve never noticed. Besides their high fecal coliforms and interference of plane flights, I’d say this is a pretty interestingly cool bird.

      Indeed humans do need to learn from these geese I guess:) Fecal coliform pretty much means bacterial contamination from their feces:/ yucky. It’s not good when it makes its way into our drinking water
