Oakley is our 10 year old Canada that we adopted from a Wildlife Rescue organization near here. He seems very content to sit and watch me do woodworking outside of the garage. Angle (which stands for A Nice Goose Loves Everybody), our other Canada (not pictured) is usually entranced listening to radio broadcasts of baseball or football games and he rarely hangs around the outside shop. (Although he does stick close by when I split firewood because of the grubs and worms I usually encounter.)

(Ignore the Woodduck)

The moment I saw the goose I thought this guy must live in Canada,I recently moved to a quiet town Near the city of Peterborough and love living on the lake also,seeing Geese and ducks here on my lawn is a common occurrence .

A few weeks ago I almost adopted a goose with a broken wing, had the Wild life rescue org’s phone number handy for when I catch that goose just so they could bring it back to health better and faster but the goose disappeared and has never been seen again.
I love the Canadian geese but hate to clean up their poop.

About 10/11 yrs back the Woods Hole Fire Sta had a “Watch Turkey”, it spent a lot of time on the railing at the side entry. I never got close to it but saw it perched on the railing when I drove by to work. If the stories are true, it allowed the firemen stationed at the place to come and go but would advance on any visiting vehicles until one of the crew would come out and shoo it off.

-- I meant to do that!
