Canada Goose
By L. Bremner of DesertRoadTrippin

Fall has definitely arrived.  The Canada Geese can be seen on many of the local golf courses in the Coachella Valley.  Their arrival is an indicator that the temperatures are cooling and fall weather will prevail.

Keep an eye out for the Geese.  You will hear them overhead as they fly by in their V shaped formation.  These graceful geese are not too shy either.  They let me get within 15 feet while taking this photo.

Lynn Bremner is the author of, a blog about desert road trips and tips. She started the blog after moving to Indio, CA where she now resides. Now a true desert dweller, Lynn has added in some of her own views on desert living. The heat does not keep her indoors in the summertime. She is out running, golfing or taking short day trips to some of the local points of interest. After years of traveling along the dusty, desert trails with her father, she has come to appreciate the beauty and solitude of the desert landscape. Her father’s passion for prospecting, desert lore and exploring the desert parks took their family to many interesting places, mostly in California, Nevada and Arizona. Lynn now writes about her desert road trips and intertwines a little bit of desert living into the mix.


  1. Thanks! More on the Canada Goose from Wikipedia …

    The Canada Goose (Branta canadensis) is a wild goose belonging to the genus Branta, which is native to Arctic and temperate regions of North America, having a black head and neck, white patches on the face, and a brownish-gray body. It is quite often called the Canadian Goose, but that name is not strictly correct, according to the American Ornithologists’ Union.[2]

    According to the Oxford English Dictionary, the first citation for the ‘Canada Goose’ dates back to 1772.
