The Giant Canada Goose was once thought to be extinct. Rediscovered in Rochester, MN in the early 1960's where over ten thousand were wintering near downtown on Silver Lake. The lake was being kept ice-free by the municipal power plant and without realizing it they were providing the perfect sanctuary for the largest known subspecies of Canada Goose. These graceful and majestic waterfowl are a sure sign of the changing of seasons. Each fall and spring as they wing there way south and north they signal the up coming season with loud honking and their familiar V fly formation.
