Canada Geese in Autumn


Hawk Buckman’s Images of Nature
Extended Edition Collection (Wildlife)

On October 1st, 2021 I got up early thanks to my Yellow Labrador Honey who somehow always seems to know when I don’t want to get up, and gets me up anyway.  After making a thermos of coffee and grabbing my gear we set out together to find, and make some images .  As sunlight began to break the horizon we found ourselves in the middle of an explosion of color as the leaves on the cottonwoods were illuminated by sunlight as Canadian geese glided across a small pond near the North Platte River.

Canadian geese have a special place in my heart thanks to my Mother who I remember being overwhelmed with emotion when she saw a small flock of Canada geese traveling North back in the early 1970’s.  She immediately pointed out that they were a protected species and began to tell me the story of how human beings hunted the birds to almost extinction.  Sitting in awe of her story she continued by cursing the stupidity of humanity and its inability to understand it’s own actions and impact on nature.  Sadly, nothing has changed.




The Canada goose (Branta canadensis) is a large wild goose with a black head and neck, white cheeks, white under its chin, and a brown body. It is native to the arctic and temperate regions of North America, and its migration occasionally reaches across the Atlantic to northern Europe.

Canada geese are considered a nuisance in many communities after nearly being completely decimated by hunting and habitat loss until the 1940’s.  The species (Branta Canadensis maxima) rebounded after wildlife managers found wild and captive flocks in the 1960s. They bred birds in captivity and relocated them throughout the U.S.
