Canadian Geese Enemies Fact Nesting Description Habitat Location Feeding Canadian Geese have many predators. The top predator of the Canada goose is humans. To control the populations, humans hunt them . Some people start egg collections to decrease the geese population in their city.
Other enemies of the Canadian Geese include the artic fox, gulls, bald eagle, and snowy owls.
You would never know it, but before the 1960's scientists and humans believed that the Canadian Geese were extinct. In the late 1960's, a few remnant populations were found. Now they are highly overpopulated. The Canadian Goose is easily identified because of its long black neck and white cheek/throat area. The under tail is dirty white .Their upper wings are light brown. Their belly area is usually white or brownish white.They have a short black tail and black legs with webbed feet. Their length can range anywhere between 15 -60 inches long with a wing span of 50-80 wingspan. These large birds live in most of North America . Canada geese live alongside ponds, lakes, and rivers. A common spot to see them is at a park. They also love marshes and grassy areas. They're drawn to them because they can eat the grass .Also when feeding their babies, it gives them a large open area to see their predators. Their nests are built with grass, sticks and other natural material. The female bird lays her eggs when there is open water for mating and open land with no snow.The female then typically lays 5 to 7 white eggs.It takes about a day for one egg to hatch.Then the male guards the eggs from danger. Laying eggs Babies

Newly hatched babies are called goslings. The babies are able to swim when they're hatched. They can go 30 to 40 feet underwater. goose tracks Migration

After the goslings hatch, the family moves away from their nest to a different eating area. Five weeks after the babies are born, the female enters the stage of molting. During the molting time period, the female is unable to fly. Then the female regrows her flight feathers about the same time the goslings start flying at 9 weeks old. In fall as soon as the babies have enough strength, they start their journey south. Some geese choose to spend winter in Canada's urban areas, but most fly south to the United States and Mexico.
