Canada Goose – Description

Canada Geese, or “honkers,” are for many people the heralds of spring and winter as their high, migratory V-shaped formations pass overhead twice a year to christen each season. Henry David Thoreau called Canada Geese “grenadiers of the air…coming to unlock the fetters of northern rivers.”
