Are we supposed to call this bird a Canada Goose or a Canadian Goose? Great question! Canada Goose is this bird’s correct name but many people would call it a ‘Canadian’ Goose. Does it come from Canada? Maybe we should ask the goose where it came from. Tallahassee you say…well you’re not a Canadian Goose then are you? No sir! Famous bird author Laura Erickson once said, “It is of course perfectly acceptable and correct to call one a ‘Canadian goose’ if you see its passport or some other verification of its citizenship.” Tallahassee’s Canada Geese were in fact imported here from New Jersey in the 1960s (Tallahassee Democrat article).
