    My daughter's girlfriend has a pair of Chinese geese, and their voices are so unique [​IMG] So musical, like a reed flute.

    I have a goose that trills sometimes in the morning when I let her out of her pen. I thought it was an excited state she is in. anticipation. I love it!

    My geese"chatter" when they are mad or when strangers approach. They "hiss" and spread their wings when scared and want to warn a danger off. They honk at each other a lot and when they see me and/or when someone comes to feed them. I have Embden and Toulouse. I heard African's and Chinese are very territorial and extremely vocal. Think watch dogs of the goose world. Does this help?
