Traveling Merchant

What's Happening In The HOA?

​Canada geese are a valuable natural resource and a source of recreation to the general public, bird watchers, and hunters. Of all the waterfowl, geese are particularly opportunistic and can easily become accustomed to people. In many areas of the United States, resident Canada goose populations have increased dramatically since the 1960's. Flocks of non-migrating Canada geese have become established throughout many states. In urban areas, Canada geese have responded to landscape features that provide expanses of short grass for food, lack of natural predators, absence of hunting, and hand feeding by some people.

Although most people find a few geese acceptable, problems develop as local flocks grow and the droppings become excessive (a goose produces a pound of droppings per day). Problems include over-grazed lawns, accumulations of droppings and feathers on play areas and walkways, nutrient loading in the marina, public health concerns at the beach, aggressive behavior by nesting birds, and safety hazards near our roads. 

Damage Prevention and Control Methods

Types of Control Methods

There are many ways to discourage Canada geese from settling. No single technique is universally effective and socially acceptable. Persistent application of a combination of methods is usually necessary and yields the best results.

Goose problems in suburban areas are especially difficult because birds are not afraid of people and may become accustomed to scaring techniques. But don't rule out any technique that might be feasible; dogs under strict supervision can safely be used and controlled hunting has been successfully used at some golf courses. Once geese settle in a particular location, they will be more tolerant of disturbances and be difficult to disperse. No method works well with just a few attempts, and a comprehensive, long-term strategy is usually needed.

Control measures work in various ways. Some reduce the biological carrying capacity of an area to support geese by reducing food or habitat. Other methods disperse geese to other sites where, hopefully, they are of less concern. Some techniques reduce the actual number of geese to a level that people can tolerate ("social carrying capacity").

To effectively reduce goose damage, the Association, with the guidance of a wildlife biologist and other experts, needs to use as many methods as possible.

The geese management plan is almost complete for 2017. We will look for planning for the 2018 year.
