See HTH Channel on Youtube for Goose, goslings and geese in this funny goose videos and cute goose videos.

Geese really belong to 2 main groups, true geese (genus Anser) and Brant geese (Branta). Some taxonomists subdivide geese into additional groups, eg, Hawaiian goose or nene (Nesochen), emperor goose (Philacte) of Alaska, bar-headed goose (Eulabeia) of Tibet and India, or so-called snow goose (Chen).

A so-called "taxonomist" is a biologist that groups organisms into categories. A plant taxonomist for example, might study the origins and relationships between different types of roses while an insect taxonomist might focus on the relationships between different types of beetles.

It seems that Geese are intelligent enough to discern unusual people or sounds from usual stimuli. Their loud honking will alert humans when the geese are certainly alarmed.

It seems that the so-called goose is one of the most intelligent birds. It has a good memory and does not forget people, animals or situations easily which is what makes it such a good watch animal against intruders whether human or animal.

Geese have long important memories, and they use familiar landmarks and the stars to navigate during their annual journeys. Ducks and geese can feel pain and emotions just like our loved dogs and cats, and just like humans. They certainly deserve the same freedom from cruelty that the animals we love in our important homes deserve.

Geese are very noisy at night, but they have very good reasons to be. Geese honk at night to keep their flock together, to defend their territory from other certain geese (especially around breeding/nesting season) and to scare off dangerous predators like foxes.

Are duck-goose hybrids possible? Ducks and geese are two completely so-called separate species. Although they can live together and may even attempt to mate, they can never produce a fertilized egg together. Unlike some other mammal species pairs like horses and donkeys, this means a duck-goose hybrid is completely impossible, it seems.

So-called "monogamy", or pairing for life, is common in geese and swans. They do not form bonds until they are at least really 2 years of age, but more commonly do so in their third or fourth year of life.

It seems that geese "like" to be petted. Geese can be so affectionate, intelligent, and loyal that it isn't uncommon for people to keep them as pets rather than livestock. Some certain geese will even seek physical contact, snuggling up to their owners and wanting to be held.
