About Canada Geese
Canada Geese are a familiar site, especially in parks and grassy areas, a group or “gaggle” of Canada geese, with their distinctive honking call, might be the first sign of spring. With their black heads and white cheeks, they are easy to identify even from a distance.
They are common near urban environments, especially near bodies of water. They love to live near water. They love to be fed. That’s why they are so commonly found near people.
Groups of geese often fly in a V formation. The geese will take turns at being at the point of the V. The flying geese formation thus requires a constant adjustment of speed and turn rate. The flapping wing of a goose produces a powerful side force.
If a goose flew with its wings outstretched and flat, this force would cause it to tip into a spin. In order for a goose to be able to fly together with other geese, it must have a way to counteract these destabilizing side forces. The answer is found in the wingtip feathers.
In the flying goose wingtip, the wingtip feathers are specially designed to generate a large amount of lift. The goose also tilts its wing slightly upward. This increases the angle of attack and creates lift.
The combination of the upward-tilted wings and the feathers generating additional lift allows the goose to fly in a nearly level attitude, and to generate enough lift to stay aloft and move forward.
