Canadian Geese that live in northern Utah on the Pacific Flyway.
The Canadian geese the waterfowl that make Utah their home year round birds in flight while it snows to groups of geese that band together in the coldest weather looking for small areas of open water in frozen ponds to rest before they fly out to open fields looking to feed and then back to the ponds safety. Northern Utah also has many marshes and wetlands around the Great Salt Lake and because of that it makes for a great nursery with many groups of nesting Canada Geese nowhere else in Utah ha
