The Canada Goose is One of the Most Common Pest Birds

The Canada goose population has skyrocketed in the past 20 years. Currently in the U.S. & lower Canada, between 3.5 & 5.5 million non-migratory Giant Canada geese reside. They are joined by an additional 9 to 11 million migrant geese from northern Canada each fall to late spring. This population is growing exponentially at the rate of 30% each year! Canada geese also sometimes migrate to northern Europe, & have been introduced to countries such as Britain, New Zealand, & other temperate regions.
