Molting

 

  • Molting season runs from early June to late July.

  • Adult geese lose wing feathers during this time and are unable to fly.

  • Geese can fly again approximately 6 weeks after molting.

  • Generally by August all geese are able to fly.

  • During the molt geese need to be near water (any water) for easy escape from predators.

Migration

  • Migration season is October through March.

  • Migratory geese flight range can be 2 – 3 thousand miles.

  • Migratory geese do not become resident geese unless they are
    injured.

  • Resident geese do not know how to migrate.

  • Resident geese can fly long distances as their migratory cousins, but generally have learned that it is not necessary.

  • Generally, during this time (from end of molt to beginning to mating) resident geese will be "pond hopping" and foraging to find food, water and safety. Migratory geese will "pond hop" and forage during this sam period until their migration habits take them back north for mating.
