There the domestic goose as well. This is a she, we believe. There’s a more aggressive second one, no doubt a male – although he seems to have developed a fear of water. A fear of water???? Yes, when chased by, for instance, a dog, he(?) goes into the water only when his safety is in obvious jeopardy.
And then there’s the inevitable Canada goose. Noisy and producing lots of droppings. Intrusive and troublesome all over, so to speak. To make things worse they fly a bit upwards at 6:00AM(!!) land on top of our little ship, start to eat the flowers and to wreck the boxes they’re in, thus waking us up early. Grrrr. Besides they’re ugly, out of proportion unlike the domestic one. Take that! © http://www.vogeldagboek.nl/fotoboek_g2.php?name=Grote%20Canadese%20gans.
