Don’t Feed the Geese, Please!
There was a time, long ago now, when seeing that v-formation of Canada geese migrating south was a cue to prepare for winter. Their loud honks would pervade the skies and draw onlookers out into their yards to witness the spectacle. Oohs and Ahhs escaping mouths with heads bent backwards, hands shielding eyes.
But now they reside here year round–everywhere. I miss seeing their v-formation, fascinated with their innate knowledge of aerodynamics. And since they are here to stay–be kind and don’t feed them foods fit for human consumption. It’s been proven that wing deformities will occur in offspring caused by the nutritional deficiencies.
I found this goose at the park and tried to research as to whether his missing foot was a deformity due to eating human foods, but I couldn’t find any information on it. He got on perfectly fine, by the way.
