|[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note|
|At least 11 subspecies of Canada Goose have been recognized and as of 2004 some of the smaller subspecies were designated their own species—the Cackling Goose.|
Researchers have identified about 13 different calls from Canada Geese. These vary including loud greeting/alarm calls and soft sounds from feeding geese.
While their eggs are incubating females lose their flight feathers, so they cannot fly until after their eggs hatch.
A group of geese has many collective nouns, including a "gaggle", "blizzard", "chevron", "knot", "plump", and "string" of geese.
