The most common collective nouns are flock of geese or a gaggle of geese.

When geese are in the air they are also referred to as skein, team, wedge or plump of geese.

The term plump is only used when the birds are flying in close formation and the term wedge is derived from the V-formation the geese fly in.

If on land it is a gaggle of geese. When flying, it is a skein (or team, or wedge).

It is a gaggle of geese if they are on the ground, and a skein of geese if they are flying.
