I got a call today about a tiny gosling that was staying all night next to his dead friend at Lake Murray. There was very bad weather last night, which is probably why his friend died. He appears to be about a week old or less. The staff there thought he was hatched at the lake, but he doesn't match any of the colors that any of the pairs there would have if they had goslings. Plus, other than one young Canada goose who goes off on his own a lot, none of the geese were observed tending any nests or acting like they were tending nests. None of the geese seemed to claim him when he was put with them, though several were curious. When I first saw him, I thought Pekin, but his head looked different and he acted strange. Sorry if this is in the wrong thread. **Update--It's possible that he is a Pekin duck even with the odd shaped head. I thought he was a duck, at first, but he didn't act like a duck and his head and legs look different. Anyway, I think he's got a permanent home no matter what he is!
