"Hank" is a rehab bird, blind in one eye and with an unfixable broken wing. The other bird is a wild Canada that flew in and joined him in the summer of '96 and has stayed since. Oh well, it must have gotten bored and found a female. It left in March of '98.

This bird, almost certainly a cross between a Canada and a domestic goose, was flying with a flock of Canadas
