Like ducks, geese also belong to the group of birds called Anatidae. These waterfowl are usually larger, longer necked and heavier than ducks although they still have the “duck-like” beak and webbed feet. Their legs are further forward than ducks because they spend more time on land feeding. They can “tip-up” when foraging for food. You are likely to see them flying in V-formations and straight lines. They are quite noisy and gregarious birds. The sexes have the same coloring throughout the year.
