The Canada goose is the largest species of true goose.Its scientific name,Branta canadensis,means "black or burnt goose from Canada".While Canada goose is the bird's official and preferred name,it is also known colloquially (通俗地) as the Canadian goose.
    The Canada goose has a black head and neck and a white "chinstrap (下巴)" that distinguish it from other geese.Its body is brown.The average Canada goose ranges from 75 to 110 cm in length and has a wingspan of 1.27 to 1.85 m.Adult females are slightly smaller and lighter than males,but they are visually indistinguishable.An average male weighs from 2.6 to 6.5 kg,while an average female weighs from 2.4 to 5.5 kg.
    Canada geese are mostly herbivores (食草动物).They eat grass,beans,corn,and aquatic plants.They sometimes also eat small insects and fish.In urban areas,Canada geese will pick food from garbage bins or accept it from humans.
    Fresh water is a primary need for these geese,and they seek it nearby wherever they happen to be.They will flock to lakes,ponds,streams,rivers and even swimming pools!This is the perfect habitat for Canada geese,and they take advantage of these areas commonly.
    Originally,the Canada goose was native to North America,breeding in Canada and the northern U.S.and migrating further south in the winter.Some geese still follow the usual migration pattern,but large flocks have established permanent residences as far south as Florida.
    Where you can find Canada geese varies based on what time of year it is.In some areas,the geese are becoming permanent residents,when they used to migrate south for the winter.The southern United States is their home during the winter,the northern United States has a year-round population,and Canada has a summer population.
