This nice fat Canada goose is from the genus Branta, or black geese. Hard to tell if this is a male or female, since they are similar in coloration and size.
These geese winter as far down as Florida and generally breed in Canada and northern U.S. They eat veggies plus insects and fish. They are monogomous and will only find a mate if their’s dies.
