Canada Geese Protecting Their Bedlam Farm Territory

The farm is surrounded by fields, marshes, streams, and a lake just north of us.  So it’s no wonder that the Canada Geese find the marsh on the farm a good place to make a nest.

I usually get to witness one or two of these territorial goose fights.  I’ve never seen any of the geese get injured, I think they only take it so far before one of the couples backs down.

I keep watching this video to see the different postures of the geese.  The way they fluff and flap their wings.  How one goose keeps his head so close to the ground.  And the serpentine neck of the goose opposing him.  Then how the take the fight to air.
