Geese live in areas that meet their food, security and reproductive needs, such as marshes, ponds and lakes. Geese are grazers that feed on grasses and vegetation found in their habitat.

Geese are waterfowl that consist of three true goose tribes, which are the gray goose, white goose and black goose. Geese are monogamous and live in permanent pairs during the year. Most of the world’s species of geese follow yearly migration patterns that are well-defined flyways or migration corridors. Some types of geese, such as snow geese, make a 5,000-mile round trip yearly migration at speeds up to 50 mph.
