A breeding ground survey of the Eastern Prairie Population (EPP) of Canada Geese (Branta canadensis interior) was developed during and has been operational since We monitored lead exposure in Eastern Prairie Population Canada geese during summer-winter, and at 5 areas.

Canada geese, along with most other goose species, are monogamous and form bonded pairs. Once a goose has chosen a mate, the couple will stay together until one of them dies. When a goose’s mate has died, the goose will often take up to several years to choose another mate.

In andwe conducted aerial surveys to compare indices of Eastern Prairie Population (EPP) Canada goose (Branta canadensis interior) brood distribution and abundance near Cape Churchill, Manitoba with those obtained in and Since the late s, many of the coastal salt marsh areas used for brood-rearing have.

Eastern Prairie Population Canada geese currently use broodrearing habitat other than the coastal salt marshes they used prior to habitat alteration resulting from foraging by light geese. A shift in the use of brood-rearing habitat could potentially reduce nest densities on the study area if first-time breeders nest closer to distant brood.

Canada Geese nested historically in some parts of southern Canada, particularly in open grassland areas with wetlands. These habitats in south-western Ontario and the southern Prairies supported breeding populations of Canada Geese at the time of settlement, although it is not known how many birds were present then.

The Canada goose was one of the many species described by Carl Linnaeus in his 18th-century work Systema Naturae. It belongs to the Branta genus of geese, which contains species with largely black plumage, distinguishing them from the grey species of the genus With special reference to the Swan Lake flock book.

Branta was a Latinised form of Old Norse Brandgás, "burnt (black) goose" and the specific epithet canadensis is a New Latin. Vaught, R.

One group is the giant Canada geese that live in Missouri and the rest of the Midwest year-round. Another is the Mississippi Valley Population (MVP) which fly north to nest in southern Hudson Bay and return south for the winter. The third group is the Eastern Prairie Population (EPP), which nest in the area around west Hudson Bay.

The geese fly in V-shaped formations. Experts believe that they do so to conserve energy. The goose in front expends the most energy and splits the air currents as it flies.

When it tires, it moves to the back of the formation and the next goose takes over. The geese fly both day and night. The long migration poses many dangers.

By the time Roberts wrote his account of the Canada Goose 40 years later, even populations in the remote counties of northwestern Minnesota were decimated in the face of extensive wetland drainage, overharvest, and egg collection.

The last goose documented nesting in the state was in on Swan Lake in Nicollet County. Interior Canada geese of the Mississippi Valley migrate northward from southern Illinois to Wisconsin, reaching in March.

It takes just about 54 days for such geese to travel from south Illinois to north Ontario. During April, Giant Canada geese depart their wintering ground at Rochester and reach Manitoba (Marshy Point) in around 7 to 10 days.

It is hard for us to believe that some 80 years ago, the Canada goose was thought to be nearly extinct. Canada geese are large birds, averaging pounds. Among waterfowl (ducks, geese and swans) of North America, Canada geese are second only to swans in size.

Canada geese traditionally spend the warmer months of the year in Canada, then migrate south for the cold winter months. This cycle has started to change due to climate change.

There is a large population of Canada geese that no longer migrate, and instead stay year-round in parts of the northern half of the United States and some warmer. REVIEW AND APPROVALS SWAN LAKE NATIONAL WILDLIFE REFUGE • Sumner, Missouri ANNUAL NARRATIVE REPORT Calendar Year • • • • • •.

In recent years winter distribution of the EPP flock has shifted farther north, but thousands of geese still winter on the Refuge. In the late decades of the nineteenth century, Canada’s population was heavily weighted in the five eastern provinces: Quebec, Ontario, Nova Scotia, Prince Edward Island, and New Brunswick.
