General Description: Canada Geese (Branta canadensis)
are big, sexually monomorphic geese. The body is dark brown above, lighter below and white
on the belly; the long neck, head, and bill are black, and the chin
is white. The outside of the eyelids are white, so
it looks like the eyes are open when the bird is sleeping.
Favored Habitat: Ponds and marshes. Also stubble fields.
