We estimated proportions of each age class nesting in a population of small Canada geese (hutchinsii-parvipes complex of Branta canadensis), Northwest Territories, Canada. Because some non-nesters left the breeding grounds before incubation, the time period used for calculating the proportion nesting affected the estimates. Estimates based on observations confined to the laying and incubation periods have probably overestimated proportions nesting, particularly for 2- and 3-year-old geese.
