Last Friday I saw an unusual goose or gander hanging out at Camp Ellis, ME (part of Saco) next to the pier where the Saco River meets the Atlantic Ocean. Today (Monday), it was still there, in the same exact spot, just sitting in the water. I don't know anything about geese, but it's clearly not a Canadian, which are the only wild kind around here. It's a beautiful light brown and white bird with an orange bill. I am very worried that this is someone's pet that has gotten loose, and now doesn't know what to do or where to go. I am worried that it will starve to death. The water is salty there.
Please help - if you know who's bird this might be, please alert them. If you know of other message boards about geese, please repost this. Or if you live nearby and can help this bird, please do so. I have no experience with geese and don't have a place to keep one.
