These Canada geese are taking a rest on the Harrison Hot Springs beach in British Columbia. The Canada goose is one of the best known birds in North America. When the birds migrate, they form impressive aerodynamic “V-formations”. These large geese can cover up to 2,400 kilometers (1,500 miles) in 24 hours with an ideal wind, but usually travel at a more relaxed pace. Canada geese mate for life and both parents raise the young.
