Our neighbor does wildlife rehab----she's had deer, antelope, coyotes, porcupines, raccoons, squirrels, opossums, and a variety of birds.
Last year she had two Canadian geese, a male and a female. The male had a broken leg, which healed well enough that he was able to leave in the spring with the rest of the wild geese. The female wasn't as fortunate, one wing had to be amputated, and since she isn't paired, the zoo doesn't want her.
About six this morning we heard honking on the wrong side of the house, so we dashed outside to see if the female was out, as she'd be easy prey for dogs if she were to escape. There was a lone goose circling the houses, honking, and the goose on the ground was answering. It appears the male came back for her! It will be interesting to see what develops, as she can't leave the yard. The neighbors may have a family in the back yard.....
