My husband and I went to visit a friend in the hospital a couple days ago. Across the street, I saw two African geese, likely looking for a nice nesting spot...Right next to the road! The last time I saw loose geese like this, it did not end kindly, one of them was hit by traffic. I cried for days after that happened (these were Canadian geese.) I believe they had been clipped or pinioned, because they could not fly more than about 3 or 4 feet off the ground.
