Dear Terri:

Thank you for sharing your story on our guestbook. We, too, are saddened to hear about the loss of the loyal gander and one of their goslings. We're very happy that they have a safe and loved place to live on your property.

Typically, female geese choose their nest sites and they typically choose the same nest site every year. I say, "typically," because I have seen a gander choose the nest site for his new mate but that is not usually the case. She may return to the same pond to nest next year, if she finds a new mate. Her gosling, if female, will likely also return to nest at your pond. If it is a male gosling, he will more likely follow his goose to a site of her choice.

It warms my heart to hear from folks like you who care about the geese as much as I do.

Choo

I have several questions about Canada Geese. We have had the same pair of geese for about 5 years now. This year they had two babies but unfortunately one of them was killed by a coyote which completely broke my heart. They had the babies on our pond but walked over to our neighbors pond which is much bigger. After one of the babies was killed they came back to our pond. I have enjoyed watching them take walks all over our property with their little one. The other night I think a coyote killed the male which has just about killed me. I love these geese so much we have fed them corn and cracked corn ever since they have been coming. My question is how can the mother watch the little baby and get sleep if she is by herself? Do you think she will ever return to our property after all the terrible things that have happened to her this year. I have often heard that the baby will return to where it was born, is this true? Any information you could give me would be so much appreciated. Terrie

Thank you, Choo, for having this great website and for all the wonderful work you do on behalf of Canada geese. We had a situation in one of our suburbs, Cheektowaga, some years ago and you were very helpful by suggesting some non-lethal solutions to the "problem" which was too much "goose poop" on a golf course. Unfortunately the powers-that-be in Cheektowaga listed to the Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC) and the geese were rounded up and gassed. Supposedly Cheektowaga said they would go toward non-lethal methods of dealing with the geese, and it seems they may have done so because we haven't heard of any more complaints from animal lovers. Again, we thank you for everything you've done and are still doing. Also, kudos to you for implementing and maintaining your email list so many people can receive information about Canada geese issues across the country. I realized this isn't a Hall of Shame story but wanted to drop you a note of thanks.

I enjoyed reading about Betsy and Barney. Today a nest hatched out that is located on an island within range of my telescope from the house. The first time I have spotted a Canada Goose nest near one of my ponds within view from my house. Ain't Nature Grand!

Dear Love Canada Geese;

I Love Geese. My favorite animal in all of the world is: the Canadian Goose. I have signed at least three petitions; designed to protect Geese. Geese are such wise and beautiful creatures.

I have contacted this website more than once in the last year to get some advice about geese with damaged wings and angel wing. After a long and hard search conducted by both myself and my husband we finally found a wonderful, small 'learning' zoo on a reservation in the Upper Peninsula that took a goose with a deformed wing that we had been looking after who was living in a cemetry. We knew if he was left alone after all the other geese & ducks left, he'd be targeted by a predator, as we live in a small town with wilderness all around. And it was just in time! We went to visit "Speedy" last month and he was doing great - although the owner determined he was a she. I have grown to love Canada Geese over the last few years as I've watched them here at our residence raise their young and seen the sadness when another gosling with angel wing lost his life to a predator after his family left last fall. It was just before we gathered a team together to catch him and take him to the same zoo. I used to think geese were a nuisance but not any more. I look forward to seeing them fly in to the pond where we live soon. I'm so glad to have found your website and thankful for the suggestions and info I got. You always answered my questions and I will keep this sight as a preferred resource. I wish you sold "I Love Canada Geese" bumper stickers!! ha ha :)

Just thinking about you, Choo, as I often do. I truly hope your heartache at Earl's loss is a bit lighter, although I know you still miss and love him!


Miss your updates!
