Wow, I got 2 emails correcting me on the conjugation of Canada in Canadian Geese(oops). so it is now Canada Goose, thanks for the correction and the scientific name. :)

There was a hot discussion a few years ago if you are supposed to conjugate the word Canada in the name Canada Goose. I have no reference for this, other than my memory, that they are NOT called Canadian Goose or Canadian Geese but instead Canada Geese and a singular Goose was Canada Geese.
