Looking for a handout...

Branta canadensis
The Canada Goose is the most common and widespread goose throughout North America.   Because of its huge range there is much geographic variation and 12 subspecies have now been identified.   Because it is a monogamous species, mated pairs stay together for life.   Canada Geese, such as the one I photographed above, will eat from your hand if they are habituated to public parks and waterways.  King Township's prevalent agricultural landscape is frequently inundated with these easily recognized avian icons.
Please comment if you wish.
