It reminds me of LG (pictured above). Many of you have been asking about him so I will provide a brief summary of his history as we know it. LG, a Canada goose with a hole punched in one foot (a way of marking water fowl) arrived on our pond 3 1/2 years ago along with a female Mallard duck. Strange as it may be, they seemed to be a pair. After a month or so, some attractive Mallard drakes showed up and she started flirting with them. After a few days she took off with them. LG was very depressed but didn't follow her. A month or so later, she came back! He grabbed her by the neck and thumped her. She left, never to return and he is still with us. He lives with our flock of Pilgrim geese and as far as we know he has not left our farm since he arrived. He can fly and has taught all of our geese to fly, but he only flies from the shed to the pond. He is quite affectionate (will let me pet him) and I have grown quite fond of him. I doubt our Bufflehead will be a permanent resident, but she is welcome as long as she stays.
