A wonderful time was had by all. We are looking forward to next year’s Valentine gala already. Hope Reynolds, President Highlights in Leisure Time Dear Editor: I am writing to correct misinformation reported by John Koster in his Feb. 25 article on GeesePeace protocol. GeesePeace is a non-profit organization dedicated to building better communities through effective and humane solutions to wildlife conflicts. Our goal is to stabilize the resident Canada goose populations throughout northern New Jersey using a three-prong protocol with GeesePeace trained volunteers: egg oiling/addling (never shaking or puncturing); flushing flocks of geese with trained border collies; and no-mow zones including “do not feed wildlife” signs. Oiling goose eggs with corn oil (prescribed by the USDA) before an air sac develops is endorsed by the Humane Society US, PETA, USDA, USF&W Service, and the Audubon Society. Volunteers go into the field in pairs. After the mother goose is off the nest, the “oiler” first puts one of the eggs in a pail of water; if the egg sinks, there is no air sac and we continue to count, mark and oil all of the eggs since they all gestate at the same time. If the egg floats, we know there is an air sac developing and we return egg to nest untouched and leave a message on a small construction flag by nest saying “next year.” The US Fish & Wildlife Service chose to build goose farms to repopulate the Canada geese after the migratory geese were decimated by hunters and manufacturers Providing emotional and of goose down andspiritual support, professional for feather products. These birds mate life and nest wherecounseling and financial and they were born; therefore, our resident geese no longer migrate.
