Mid-spring is breeding season for the Canada goose.

The wild goose can be found throughout wetlands across Canada and can lay up to eight eggs in a clutch, according to WildSafeBC.

The goslings also stay with their parents for up to a year. 

WildSafeBC reminds the public geese will protect their nests and young from humans. If you're ever charged by a defensive goose, it is best to retreat slowly so the bird knows you mean no harm.

Check out the video below for some amazing footage of some geese with their young.
