Canadian Geese require no passport to fly into and freely inhabit American lands. They have been taking advantage of this perk for hundreds of years until colonials began to settle directly in their migratory paths. The Canadian Geese population dropped steadily into the 20th century, which led to the passing of the Federal Migratory Bird Act of 1918. Protection was granted to certain migratory birds between the U.S. and several countries to help boost the population. A complete list of protected species can be found here.
