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 :)

Hello!! A pair of geese have built a nest beneath a pine tree on our lot at work soon to be having triplets!! With great caution when even looking their way and any where near the nest, I've begun to feed them now on a regular basis; breakfast, lunch and dinner!! They really are beautiful animals and I've grown quite fond of them and they definetly have come to recognize me now and greet me all of the time when I arrive. I may think of names or just leave them as they are and YES they each have their own ways and personalities about them. I WILL be their overwatch!! Just thought I'd share the story!! Take care!!

Thank you so much for your posting about Canadian geese. I was feeding my friend Hector bread. Now I'm going to go and get crack corn. I loved what you wrote about them. I call out to Hector and when he sees me he comes. One time he flew the whole way down the side of the beach, coming in "skiing". Most the time he just floats down the water and then walks up to me when the tide is out. I look for him and he seems to look for me. I enjoy my time at the beach even more now knowing that Hector will be visiting me. Not many people know these things. Thank you for posting.!

Thank you so much for the encouraging articles and writings about these beautiful creatures, a few of them come through our warm Arizona climate but they usually leave before the summer heat, out here by my cities Park they always have a baby or two it is so beautiful to watch they are so gracious and gorgeous. Thanks to some of your articles have now learned that I can feed them cracked corn and at least make their stay a little better while the babies get big enough to fly, I wish I could be there to watch them learn how to fly that's one thing I've never had the luck to see how do these babies learn how to fly and then they fly out for miles and miles and miles I wish I could watch that well anyhow thank you so much for putting up this website is help me a lot and I promise to carry on the legacy of love for these animals out here in Arizona. Kind regards, Paul

This message is for Mel:


Mel, the goose is a gander who is doing guard gander duty for his nesting goose. There's nothing you have to do. He doesn't need or want to be rescued. He is standing guard for his goose, who is nesting somewhere. Soon they should have goslings in tow.

I have a house on the Missouri River in northern Nebrasak. There is a goose that is hanging out in our yard starting about April 1. He does not appear to be injured and will fly into the river when approached. He does not appear able or want to fly away. No sign of injury. Will disappear for day or so and reappear. There is weeded and wild areas nearby. Can I do anything to help this beautiful creature?
