Canada Goose (Branta canadensis) with goslings, Belchertown, Massachusetts. Familiar in every state and province, Canada Geese are commonly seen flying in V-shaped flocks of migration. Tolerant of man, some even nest in city parks and suburbs and are especially noticeable in late summer and early fall, when they gather on golf courses and large lawns to molt. Goslings (young Canada geese) are yellow with some greenish-gray colorings on top of their heads and backs. These colors fade as the gosling grows into the adult color pattern. All goslings have black or blue-gray bills and legs that become darker as they age.
