Geese (Anserinae) are a breeding bird which belong to the subfamily of ducks. They are populated in the Arctic, Europe and Asia. For hibernation they fly to North Africa in large flocks showing their typical "V"-formation and with a loud gaggle. This can be heard well from a far distance already. Geese feed of plants, roots and berries, but not in the water.

The white goose is the domesticated variety of the grey goose, that was already held by Romans and Germanic tribes because of their flesh and feathers. But they can be found as religious or cultural figures too, e.g. in Egypt history. In fairytales geese often represent stupid figures.
Geese can gaggle very loud, even bite and drive strangers away that they can be used as watch dogs as well. There are many stories about geese that either warned of or betrayed someone just in time.

The second photo shows our white goose together with the wild specimen, the grey goose (Kö-F6391).
Did you know that geese live monogamic, means choosing the partner for whole life?
