This is the ongoing story of a lone Canada Goose gander - a male who struck up an unusual friendship with the author, and who has allowed her, for three consecutive years so far, to approach him, talk to him and take photos of him, all without feeding him or trying to tame him.
He and his mate have nested on the same off-shore rock for at least four years now; according to a couple who walk this area every morning very early, they've seen them at this place since about 2005.
The story begins with the author's 'discovery' of seeing a wild goose at the sea, which seemed to her a most unsual place for a fresh-water bird. . .
