The Canada Goose (Branta Canadensis)

The Canada goose is recognisable by its white chest and brown body and is regularly seen on the last 7 holes of the course. Though not indigenous, their numbers are increasing rapidly in the Flanders. These birds feed mainly on plant material, and can often be seen enjoying a snack around the 16th green. When feeding in water, they submerge their heads and necks to reach aquatic plants, sometimes tipping forward like a dabbling duck. Flocks of these birds often feed on leftover cultivated grains in fields, especially during migration or in winter.
