Canadian Geese

If you see geese flying over your head, there’s a 90% chance it’s Canadian Geese. You can distinguish them by their black head and neck with a white patch on a cheek. Canadian Geese are rather common in Maryland and throughout the mid-Atlantic region. Some of them live here year round, while others leave in fall to travel to warmer lands. Geese have strong family bonds and both parents share in rearing of their young. Geese prefer to nest in open grassy areas with access to water, which is why large groups of geese can be found on islands. They grow attached to their “homes” and will return year after year to spend summer or winter in the same spot.
