The breeding ground of this species of goose is around the Bering Sea, primarily in Alaska but also in Siberia. It is sometimes seen southward along the Pacific Coast of Canada and the US. They are mitigatory and winter in mainly in the Aleutian Islands.
The coloring of the male and female are almost identical but juveniles have heads the same color as the body.
These two Emperor geese live at our local Pioneer Park Aviary. The aviary has a breeding pair that live there year round. They have a huge wooded area to live in with a stream running through the enclosure.

I am taking part in a spay/neuter event again this week so I might not be around much.
