Do the same group of Canadian geese always fly together?

Asked by kelly (1908points) January 10th, 2008

when migrating birds alight from a lake or field and into many groups with various populations, are the groups always made up from the same set of individuals?

Were I to guess, I’d say the answer is no. It is known that geese a monogamous and will stay with their partner for life (so in that sense, they fly together). They will also follow roughly the same flyway every year and families will often join together to create flocks. From what I’ve seen out there, I don’t think the groups are always made up of the same individuals, however.
