Hi Graham,

Good suggestion.

I've spoken to staff at Mogo Zoo, 52 km to the south of Lake Burrill as the 
geese fly. They don't have Canada Geese nor have they lost any. The person I 
spoke to was going to follow it up with their bird staff to find out if A) 
anybody else keeps Canada Geese in the area and B) if they know of any recent 

I'm interested in hearing any updates on sightings and behaviour (does 
hand-feeding mean taking grain from a persons hand [in which case wild origin 
can be ruled out] or does it mean grain spread by hand in a paddock/swamp edge 
that the birds then eat?)
