Between resident and migratory Canada Geese, there sure are a lot of these big birds flying around the Gorge this time of year. A few interesting facts about them (from www.geeseguys.com): Life expectancy of Canada Geese is about 20 years; adults generally weigh between 20-25 pounds; females can produce up to 80 offspring in their lifetime; pairs mate and stay together for life (unless one dies); they return to the general area of their birth each year.
