Many people recognize the Canada goose by its distinctive black head, white cheeks, long, black neck and webbed feet. Canada geese are found in most types of wetland. Although they are waterfowl, they spend as much time on land as they do in the water. In the spring and summer months, the geese eat leaves, flowers, stems, roots, seeds and berries. They will often eat for 12 hours or more a day to consume a sufficient amount of nutrients.
