I recently returned from a visit to the Horicon Marsh in Horicon, WI. On the boat tour we took, the captain proudly told us about the city's goose roundup. Myself, along with the others on the boat, were duly horrified. My entire perception of the marsh has changed with the killing of brutal killing of these geese and the trapping of animals for profit. I will not return. Shame on this city.

My house is on a wide artifial lagoon on the shore of San Francisco Bay.

We have many resident Canada Geese - I just watched a group of eight swim by.

They always delight me and bring me a peace that is so missing in our human world.

I have such great respect their social structure and the way they care and protect each other.

And they are such elaegant birds! I feel privileged to have them in my neighborhood!!

Please stay!

I feel very privledged to have had a pair of geese allow me into their lives for about 14 years. Papa and Mama goose spent much of their time on the large pond where I live, nesting and raising their young - and often during the winter they would be frequent visitors as they no longer seemed to migrate. They would march their goslings to my patio and, as the years went by, allowed me to sit next to them - and their goslings - as they rested. I always considered this an honor yet noticed that they remained wary of others, for which I was glad. When I would walk to the pond they would come running to me and I considered them family.

This spring coyotes killed both of them one night, the night before the eggs were due to hatch. I was able to save 3 of the eggs and took them to a bird wildlife sanctuary where they hatched that day and have since been adopted by another goose family.

It has been almost 3 months since losing these dear geese and still I miss them, I mourn them no differently than I have mourned losing certain people in my life. Not all would understand, but I don't look for that. How thankful I am for what I learned from Mama and Papa goose, for the gifts they gave me and for allowing me into their lives.

Thank you for your great article on feeding geese! i will save it for future reference;-) I see and greatly admire what I believe is the same flock living near a local pond & have thrown chicken scratch and various types of grain to them over the last few years and they do seem to recognize me and do not run away as they did in the beginning !

Hi, I am a international PhD student came from China and will 4 years in Canada. I really love the canada geese. In this spring, a pair of geese made a nest in the parking lot of my office and they became very good friends to me, so friendly to me that the male goose like to stay with me, more than his wife, haha. However, their eggs were treated with oil so they would never seen their goslings, they spent 2 months and finally gave up and fly away.

I really miss them, and I was really touched by this birds.

Thank you so much for this site, it has taught me so much. I live by a shallow river and started feeding Canadian geese and eventually their goslings about a year ago. I never try to hand feed them or encourage them to approach me because not all humans are " goose friendly". They are such beautiful creatures,

I just want to tell you how great it was to find your page. I just finished reading your post about Bert and Ernie and watched the linked story as well. THANK YOU Rob Burgener for what you did for these two geese! I loved the last line of something to the effect of "where they will live the rest of their lives". Lucky Geese....

I have recently befreinded a group of parking lot geese. It all started when i noticed a couple of nesting geese, and watched how the group guarded and protected the mothers. I was excted to know that there would be goslings all over the place, and started feeding the mothers each day. Sadly, predators seem to have gotten to both nests one night. It was a sad experience, but as the days passed, I noticed that the other geese were supporting the mourning mother geese and eventually, things seemed 'ok'. I had read about how sometimes the mourning goose will isolate, but it seems the others wouldnt let them. I enjoy my daily visits with my 'friends'. I'm starting to see personalities and behaviors unique to each and the absolute best thing is happening. They recognize me as soon as I walk towards them and a couple of them now run up to me. And here, I used to never even pay notice to all the geese around.......

Needless to say, I now love Canadian Geese! At any given time, I have feed in my car for those I find along my way, and someday I'm sure I'll have some fun stories too :)
