A Western Friend

Canadagjess har over årene blitt et stadig mer vanlig innslag i Norge, og – ikke alle er like begeistret. Antallet er nå så massivt at det enkelte steder går ut over avlinger så vel som generell trivsel. Det tar ikke med seg sine ‘etterlatenskaper’ når de flyr videre . . .
Men det er en vakker fugl! Den ble først introdusert i Sverige i 1929, men spredte seg raskt – også til Norge. I begynnelsen var den fredet her til lands, men nå er det innført almenn jakt på denne fuglen. Den har lagt sin elsk på kystnære strøk i Trøndelag, men ellers regner man med at det i Norge nå finnes ca 2000 hekkende par av denne arten.
Over the years, the Canadian Goose have become an ever more common sight throughout Norway. And in some places their numbers are so massive that they have a negative impact on the farmers crop as well as the way they are accepted. Needless to say, they don’t pick up ther droppings as they fly on to their next destination, but – it’s a beautiful bird to watch!
It was first introduced into Sweden (1929) but spread quickly across the boarder to Norway.
In the beginning the species were protected, but from the mid-80th’s  hunting became allowed. As of today they estimate their numbers in Norway alone to be approximately 2000 couples of nesting birds.

  1. I love listening to the Canadian geese fly over the MidWestern United States!

    Thank you! That’s my intentions. Setting a standard for myself! And you know what: Looking at the pictures I shot 5 years ago, I’ll probably have to delete 50% as they no longer hold my standard of today. Sad but true. But – I really don’t know whether it was due to ‘sloppy me’ or the camera technology available to me in those days? Things have really changed. Just look at the mobile cameras of today? Just as good as many professional cameras if the conditions are otherwise OK.

    Great shot! The goose and his reflection in the water, so clear and crisp!
