      Canada goose use on public lands, while subsequently decreasing the amount of Canada goose use on private lands. The approach will be to review habitat management programs on Federal refuges and State wildlife areas to assure that everything possible is being done to provide abundant, high quality goose forage on public lands.

This book describes each species’ geographic range. About the Ross's Goose Breeding. Ross' geese breed in the low arctic tundra, mainly near Queen Maud Gulf, southern Southampton Island, the western coast of Hudson Bay and the Sagavanirktok River delta in Alaska.

They usually nest in colonies mixed with lesser snow geese, making their nests on the ground in sparsely vegetated areas. A diminutive version of the familiar Snow Goose, Ross’s Goose is also white with black wingtips but has a shorter neck and stubbier bill.

These gregarious waterfowl can form huge flocks on their own, and smaller numbers also join enormous flocks of Snow Geese. Both these species have seen population explosions as climate change has warmed their arctic breeding grounds, reducing snow cover. Ross's goose (Anser rossii) is a white goose with black wingtips and a relatively short neck, and is the smallest of the three light geese that breed in North America.

It is similar in appearance to a white-phase snow goose, but about 40% smaller. Other differences from the snow goose are that the bill is smaller in proportion to its body and lacks "black lips". NORTHWEST TERRITORIES.

Conservation Status. The population of Ross' Geese was estimated at only 2, to 3, individuals in Protection from hunting has helped the Ross' Goose population recover to a total ofbreeding birds, although it is still listed as a species-of-concern on the Partners in Flight watch list.

the time of creation of the Permit Zone, the Taverner’s and lesser goose, as well as other Canada goose populations, were becoming more numerous in the region.

Regulations exist to minimize the harvest of duskys while supporting harvest of more abundant geese. Some legal geese, however, are easily confused in the field with the dusky.

Ross, a Hudson's Bay Company factor at Canada's Fort Simpson between to According to the online "Dictionary of Canadian Biography" (), "Ross’s primary significance is in the field of natural history rather than the fur trade.

Ross's Goose: Small, white goose with black primary feathers and stubby gray-based red-orange bill. Red-orange legs and feet. Eats mostly fresh grasses and grains, often in the company of Snow Geese.

Rapid direct flight with strong wing beats. Flies in a V formation. North America's smallest goose. The Ross’s Goose (Chen rossii) breeds mainly in the Northwest Territories, but also eastward in Manitoba and Ontario along the western Hudson Bay and winters mostly in central California.

They usually nest on remote island-studded lakes with fairly dry surroundings, being less likely than other geese to nest along rivers or on lake shores.

Photo-inventory surveys of the Ross’s goose breeding population in. In the Northwest Territories, arctic foxes sometimes killed nesters and often caused nest desertion, but avian nest predation did not affect nesting success (Ryder ).

Ryder () found no evidence of competition with snow goose for nest sites, but suggested that competition could become a problem if snow goose numbers increased substantially. Breeding and Nesting. Ross's Goose: Four or five white eggs are laid on the ground in a grass nest lined with down and built on a small lake or river island; nests in loose colonies.

Incubation ranges from 21 to 24 days and is carried out by the female. Foraging and Feeding. Barnacle Geese breed mainly in the European Artic Tundra and Islands, and winter in the coastal grasslands of northwest Europe.

Barnacles can be bred in colonies but a very large area should be used for this as Ganders become very territorial. We have found single pairs. Three populations of white-fronts breed in Alaska.

Currently, about 95 percent of all Ross’s Geese nest in the Queen Maud Gulf Migratory Bird Sanctuary in the central Canadian Arctic.

The main wintering area for Ross’s Goose (Chen rossii) is presently in the Central Valley of California, though increasing numbers winter in Arkansas, Louisiana, New Mexico, Texas, and the north-central highlands of Mexico 1. crete breeding ranges, migratory paths, and wintering ranges.

The high level of subspeciation among Cackling (and Canada) Geese may seem sus-pect when compared with other geese that breed in North America, such as Ross’s Goose (no subspecies), Snow Goose (two sub-species), Brant (at least two subspecies breed-ing in North America), or Greater.

Light goose breeding colonies have since expanded in size, and new colonies have been established as populations have increased exponentially. Based on migration and wintering population surveys, lesser snow and Ross's goose numbers in the Mississippi and Central flyways have increased threefold over the past five decades, from fewer than 1.

breeding colonies has grown from about – million in (Kerbes, ; Boyd et al., ) to –6 million in (Abraham and Jefferies, ). The Ross’s goose (Chen rossii) population has also grown substantially, from under in the s to over 1 million in (Dzubin, ; Kelley et al., ).

Canada Gees migrate north to their breeding grounds and south to their wintering grounds (Ross). During migration north and south the geese follow four main flyways, Atlantic flyway, Pacific Flyway, Mississippi Flyway and the Central Flyway (Breen).
