Hello:

What a joy to see your webste dedicated to marvelous Canada geese. It's such a pleasure to know there are people out there who care about the welbeing of Canada geese and love them. I love them dearly for their amazing qualities and here in Boston I advocate for them. I'd like to find people here in Massachusetts who love them and advocate for them. Urban Canada geese's lives are very stressful and full of dangers.

A family of Canada geese have raised near our pond for 5 or 6 years now. The same couple return each year and stake claim to the aira. Usually, the babies from the previous season arrives with the parents, but when the goose is ready to nest, the gander rives all other fowl including his own goslings away. They disappear in mid Jiune to find a place to molt and return some time in August.

But, I have never seen such amazing parenting as performed by the goose and gander. They could offer humans some much-needed lessons. I especially admired the gander and his devotion to family. But, I suspect that devotion cost him his life this year. The goose left with their 5 babies to molt without the gander. He had been missing 5 days before the family packed up and left for molting grounds.

I miss them; the pond is sad and looks so lonely without them. I pray for a safe trip for them and hope to see all of them soon. I would really love to see the gander appear back with his family

I really love this website!! I love Canada Geese and get teased a lot for it. I love to watch and feed them at the pond. I agree that they are all individuals and have feelings and that they recognize me.

I love these beautiful creatures. To me, they are very close to humans and I have adored "presiding over" my local public pond and the families of Cadian Geese for the past three years. AlexGANDER and GooseElise have really been amazing heads of this family. My heart has been broken this year by the runt of the largest family. He was a tiny, cute as a "BUTTON" scrapper from the start. He is always either at the front of the clatch or on his way to the front! He wil NOT be left out, but poor Button only has one eye. Now, I have noticed that the whole family is starting to take day trips, but they leave "Button" behind. If someone knows what I am going to do when they leave Button for good, please let me know.

contact me if you would like help in saving Boston and other geese. I have a blog just posted on The Huffington Post. At the end is contact information. I'm a journalist who feels geese are the most misunderstood and maligned creatures I've encountered (after an investigation of the USDA's Wildlife Services). I'm currently setting up a geese management plan for our whole community. If I can do it here, we can do it anywhere. Mary Lou Simms

I'm advocating for Canada geese in Boston area, to protect their lives. I don't know if I'll be able to achieve it, but I am trying. Some local authorities don't care about protecting Canada geese's lives, and this is tragic.

Your website is wonderful and I praise you for your compassion, advocacy for these amazing wild birds

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
