The Canadian Goose (Branta Canadensis)

These images were taken back in the spring at my local wetland reserve using an old Canon 7d accompanied with a 500mm  Sigma telephoto lens,a basic package.

The Canadian goose is a native species to the Artic and temperate regions of North America.These geese are migratory and often reach us here in the U.K.

They are well known to be seen in wetland and park areas and large in numbers,but that does not distract it from being an impressive large bird with plenty of attitude.

There are people who consider them pests with issues such as crop deprivation and noise levels,and in North America Canadian geese are the most commonly hunted waterfowl.
