2017 DECEMBER QUIZ:
"A Gaggle of Geese"
Of the waterfowl, geese range the most in size and are often the most terrestrial (offering great looks out of the water). In Ohio, geese can pretty much be separated into two groups: brown geese and white geese. After the primary color is decided, additional colors and markings on the head, breast, and wings can further separate these birds. However, some species of goose often resemble another species in appearance. To separate these look-alike birds, you’ll have to focus on other features such as bill, head, and body shape.
[Hint: All these geese can (but not always) be found in Ohio.]
