Adult geese have very few predators other than coyotes and wolves, but a whole range of birds and mammals will attack goslings or steal eggs they find in nests. For this reason, geese avoid using areas where there are tall plants that block their view of the surrounding area. An un-mowed buffer of native grasses, flowers, shrubs or trees around lakes and ponds discourages geese from congregating and nesting in yards (though it is important to note that unless your neighbors plant buffers as well, your shoreline planting will merely send geese out of your yard and into theirs).

Native shorelines keep geese away, while at the same time, lure other less-common shoreline birds like herons and egrets. These natural areas also provide refuge for turtles, frogs and salamanders, as well as passing songbirds. "What people seem to forget is that there would have been a multiple pile-up if that bird had got onto the motorway."If you see something that big running across the road, you're going to swerve to avoid it."We did it for the bird, but it's just as important for the other people on the road.
"They don't have to migrate," he said."We would aim to find a suitable, safe piece of countryside near some water."It would be a far better life than being put in the oven at 180 degrees."Wildlife Aid covers Surrey, as well as parts of Hampshire and Sussex, and deals with more than 20,000 incidents of hurt or distressed animals each year.the industry-leading provider of enterprise cloud commerce solutions, today announced that Canada Goose, the iconic outdoor luxury apparel brand, is using Demandware Commerce to power its global direct-to-consumer strategy.

In addition to their loud, trumpet-like calls and the feces they leave behind, these black, brown, and white birds — which weigh anywhere from 2-14 pounds, can live up to several decades, fly in a classic 'v' formation, and average 5-6 offspring after a 24-28-day hatching period during which the female incubates the eggs and the male guards them — can cause significant damage to lawns, golf courses, corporate parks and agricultural crops.
"Roosting on water bodies or ice at night and flying during the day to feed, the diet of Canada geese changes throughout the year," Nichols said. "In the winter, they'll eat grain, grasses, corn, and corn waste due to its higher calorie and fat content, while in the late winter and early spring they may overgraze farmland and jeopardize wheat, barley and oat crops, which are first coming up for the season and are full of nitrogen. Geese can also carry diseases or promote the spread of elements that contaminate water bodies," he said, "though geese are more removed from carrying diseases that can affect humans than some other animals, like deer, and don't represent a 'ticking time bomb' in that respect."
