    Are there any left in Canada? There are so many permanent resident geese here in the Bay Area that I sometimes wonder if they have all moved here because of the nice weather. Can't blame them if that was the case ;)

    Just came across seven little goslings with their parents the other day. Awfully cute, and US "citizens" given that they we're hatched here in CA.

    These geese caused a eight-mile traffic backup on I-71 South Wednesday. Here, a person tries to help the geese across the highway.

    Eight miles? Two geese? I fairly regularly have to stop for geese crossings near work. I often (when traffic allows) get out of the car and chase them off the road (pretty easy). Just run in their general direction and they'll usually take flight.
