Majestic, but messy

They might make a mess, but our fair-weather residents are always a welcome sign of spring. Canada geese return each year to the place they were born, to brood and raise goslings of their own. Geese mate for life, and live for 15-20 years in the wild. Urban areas areas are a favourite nesting spot for geese, due to lower predator numbers.
