The Canada Goose (Branta canadensis) is a wild goose belonging to the genus Branta, which is native to arctic and temperate regions of North America, having a black head and neck, white patches on the face, and a brownish-gray body. [...] The black head and neck with white "chinstrap" distinguish the Canada Goose from all other goose species.

Arrived safely back at our vacation log home where the lake is still frozen and the geese, like this pair, are already staking out and protecting their nesting locations, on the small islands we built, against intruders.

 

Have a lovely Thursday and thanks for visiting.
