canada goose Explained

Canada goose at English => English (The Britannica Concise) Of Explained:

Brown-backed, light-breasted goose (Branta canadensis) with black head and neck and white cheeks. Subspecies vary in size, from the 3-lb (1.4-kg) cackling goose to the 20-lb (8-kg) giant Canada goose, which has a wingspread of up to 6.5 ft (2 m). Canada geese breed across Canada and Alaska and winter mainly in the S U.S. and Mexico; they have been introduced into England and other countries. They are an important game bird. Their almost incessant honking draws attention to their V-formations during migrations. In recent years their population in N. America has greatly increased.
