10 Canada Goose Design Unknown source A flock of Canada geese has been seen flying south over a particular route year after year. A young ornithologist wanted to see if they used visual information (landmarks such as rivers, hills, or other types of topography) in determining their course. He borrowed a plane and flew one-half of the starting flock due west of their starting point and released the birds. The other half of the birds were left alone and allowed to migrate. Both groups of birds flew south and ended up about 300 miles apart.
