Another goose roundup!

Postby Seaductor » Thu Jul 04, 2013 5:00 am

Picking up 5+ gallons of goose poop every morning isn't much fun for the staff At the Damariscotta Lake State park! I met up with Kelsey Sullivan and crew to round up some of the offending birds for banding and relocation to a place where they can deposit their coliform bearing droppings without threatening public health! We corralled something like 3 dozen of the foul fowl. Over a dozen had been banded last year and relocated. They returned this Spring to have families. Or maybe they just liked the truck ride last year and came back for another!!
Interestingly some of this year's young were huge already. Must have been some really early broods
Another fun day with a lot of beach goers watching the action.
