Geese and Winters
Where do geese spend there winters?
It depends on the species of geese and what part of the world they live
in. In the midwestern US Canada geese may winter anywhere there is open
water, many of the giant race stay all year in the Chicago area, for
example. Other Canada geese, snow geese and white fronted geese winter
from the lower Missouri and Mississippi Rivers to the Gulf States. Geese
also winter along both Atlantic and Pacific Coasts, in the central valley
of California, and other places where there is open water.
Geese fly south for the winters, staying anywhere from the southern United
States to Mexico.
