Did you know that the geese shown in today’s image are known as Canada geese… not Canadian geese?
According to Laura Erickson, who writes on the mailing list of the Minnesota Ornithologists’ Union, the Canada goose gets its name from its breeding range. “It is of course perfectly acceptable and correct to call one a ‘Canadian goose’ if you see its passport or some other verification of its citizenship,” she adds.
Asked on Quora which is correct, Bob Edwards says: “Either could be correct. It depends if you’re talking about the species Canada Goose or one of many species of goose extant in Canada which would all be Canadian Geese.”
