Canada Goose are distributed over a vast area. This page will go into details regarding their distinct habits.
You can find the Canada Goose during breeding season throughout the Canadian territory and all year long in southern parts of Canada. Canada geese will stay in an area where they can find clear water and food. Most of them will migrate in the USA in winter. Some will even find their way to Mexico. In spring, they will head back north to breed.
The female goose lays 4 to 6 eggs and according to different sources, incubation will last between 24 and 33 days.
The male and female stay together all their life,it is one of their most natural habits. If one should disappear the living Canada Goose generally finds another mate.
Another interesting characteristic is that the family stays together for one year after the goslings are born. However, upon return to the breeding territory the goslings will leave the parents to fend for themselves.
They will then fight for a mate and like the parents be with that mate for life.
