With my backyard essentially on a bay I have befriended many aquatic birds but none as interesting as the Canada Geese. For a couple of years now the same couple have been coming daily to bask, sleep and eat but I never could have been more excited when they came back with two adorable babies. I had seen many babies in the wild but never as young as this pair. I felt honored that this mom and dad choose to allow me to see their precious goslings. I was looking forward to watching this tiny pair grow,unfortunately not too long after I had met them one baby disappeared, literally. One minute it was there as they were swimming away and the next it was gone. To witness the distress of these parents as they frantically looked and called for their baby. I was horrified, and I never could have imagined the same thing happening to the one remaining baby the very next day!!!! I thought to myself "what the heck is going on here" "is there a predator in this bay just pulling babies under" I don't know, but it breaks my heart thinking this mom and dad brought their babies over here to show them off and then this happens!!!!! It may be the circle of life but it's truly unfair to take both of these babies from this new family leaving them with only themselves. I would like to Thank You for this beautiful, informative site. It is good to know that not everyone dislikes these birds and admires their beauty and intelligence the way I do. Love Canada Geese

With all my heart I love these beautiful, intelligent, gentle, and graceful creatures, and it breaks my heart when I see one of them get hit by a car. What is the best way to discourage them from crossing the road next to a field full of grass, do you know? Won't a barrier of tall grass, reeds, and/or bushes do the trick? They have more of a right to occupy the land than we humans do, I know, and I just want to do anything I can to protect them against humanity's onslaught of environmental destruction.

Hello...we have a Canadian Goose who has made himself comfortable at or near our animal sanctuary...we have a large field next to our home, and we believe his "nest" might be near there...there is no access to water here for him, so I fill up a large plastic container in the sanctuary that he gets water from often....I also put a large container next to it that I fill up with food for him....we know that cracked corn is one of their favorites, so we keep a good supply in that container for him....he has been eating some of the bird seed that is on plates, or on the ground lately, so I did put a little bit of that next to his cracked corn....I guess cracked corn might get a little boring for him, so he took a liking to some bird seed on his own....it seems that he has chosen not to migrate for some reason....we didn't expect him to stay for long, but he has been here for close to a month now....apparently his spouse visits him occasionally, as I see both of them together in the field once in a while....we will continue to make sure he gets the water and food that he desires while he stays...he seems to be very comfortable now near our home and sanctuary....any info you can send us by email would be much appreciated.....Harold (Smith Auction Company)

We have a set of Canada geese nesting on our pond on a big hay bale that my husband put in the pond for them. We are really excited to see when the babies hatch . We watch them from the house daily.

I just love silly little geese and their babies! they're all over the uni campus, but some are kind of agressive so i don't like them so much.

Choo: We fed about 200 Canada geese all winter (grains and bread) ... even in the south, the grass was scarce. As a result, they look fabulous and beautiful. They flew in every evening about 5:30 for their corn and left by dawn. It was a nightly ritual. If you live in places that don't allow feeding, leave out the corn at night. You have to be sneaky about it but in winter, it can mean the difference between life and death.

Somehow a Canada goose that canot fly and a wild duck have made their way to my farm. They are now protected within a fenced area containing a one acre pond. Thank you for the article about how and what to feed them. I am happy they have arrived at Heaven Can Wait Farm and look forward to getting to know them.
