I thought I'd share this story because I find it very interesting. This little lady has been stuck at the park across from my house for as long as I can remember. She can't migrate due to her right wing. She was never able to find a Canada goose gander that would stay with her. After the last of the domestic females died, this old gander took the little female as his mate. When I realized that they were together, I was pretty surprised because they never interacted much before that. This picture is from early spring 2009. She proved to be an outstanding parent, and raised four of the five goslings she hatched. All four have the same father, but all look considerably different. The one on the left was the only male, and all four have very distinct honks that are a combination of a Canada goose call and a domestic goose call. All four can fly, and the females can cluck like a domestic female. The gander, and the dark female both left with Canada goose flocks, the two white females live permanently at the park. Spring 2010 came around and the pair bred again. She successfully hatched out six goslings, but lost one after a few weeks. Out of her 2010 clutch, there were three males, and two females. Another dark male and female, two gray males, and one white female. Both females still live at the park, as does one of the gray males. The second gray male was hit by a car, and the dark male left with a Canada goose flock. This is one of the grey males, with mom in the corner. An absolutely beautiful bird. Again, all five can fly but I'm pretty sure they're all sterile.. but they're nice to look at!
