"When they have their young they're pretty protective, so they would chase kids down.". Refuge managers used a captive flock to entice wild geese to Fish Springs and, through release and unintentional escape of captives, established a year-round population. From to refuge personnel monitored breeding birds to obtain production numbers and survival rates (Table 1).Cited by: 7.

The average mortality rate of Canada Geese ranges from 20 - 52%; with male Canada Geese usually suffering higher mortality than females. The survival rate for first-year resident geese ranges between 70 to 90%, and the survival rate for first-year migratory birds ranges between 25 to 80% (with an average of 59%).

Canada geese have a diverse approach toward nesting. They will nest almost anywhere; bushes, fairways, cliffs, muskrat houses and small islands.
