Canada Geese

Geese often mate for life, and can pine to death at the loss of their mate
They are aggressive only when protecting their young
They are devoted parents and never leave their goslings unguarded
Migrating geese in Canada have been known to allow hitchhikers! Smaller birds have been found on their backs.

'Whosoever eats goose on Michaelmas Day,
Shall never lack money his debts to pay.'
