Geese are medium-sized birds that are commonly found near sweet water bodies, including ponds, lakes or rivers. There are many species of geese, and some of them are endemic to the eastern United States.
Geese are often seen near ponds, lakes, rivers or standing water, and they usually can be identified easily.
Geese aren't dangerous to people. Having said that, they can become aggressive towards humans, if they feel threatened or if they perceive that their space has been invaded. Geese are also considered a nuisance because they can pollute small bodies of water with excessive droppings. Moreover, they can be very noisy.
