"Most people have forgotten how to live with living creatures, with living systems and that, in turn, is the reason why man, whenever he comes into contact with nature, threatens to kill the natural system in which and from which he live."
Konrad Lorenz, Father of the Greylag Geese
WELCOME TO LOVE CANADA GEESE!
The warm days of summer are here and I hope you're all enjoying the lovely weather. I'm already seeing early geese flights as this year's goslings test their wings and their parents take to the skies after the summer molt. Sadly, I've also seen some geese killed on our streets as families venture further away from ponds and rivers. Please slow down when you see geese on the street. Some of them are unable to fly and others do not understand that streets are unsafe for them to hang out. I'm also receiving emails from concerned folks about geese with broken wings. Alas, as geese begin to fly, accidents can happen as they fly into power lines. I'm also trying to rescue some injured geese in our city ponds.
