More West Seattle birds: These geese are fuzzy – and famous

(WSB photos by Torin Record-Sand)
A family of Canada geese along Harbor Ave got their 15 seconds of fame this afternoon — catching the attention of media photographers (including ours) heading away from Seacrest after the diver-rescue incident. These little guys even turned up in a clip on the channel 4 news.

Yes, we know some consider geese a nuisance, but you know, they’re noble in their own way. Including lifelong fidelity.

    Cute but….. Have you ever tried to use the nice grassy area that is supposed to be a park? You can’t sit because it is covered with goose crap. They might be cute, but they are a pain in the butt too.

    I know what you mean about all the goose crap! but then again everyone has got to crap somewhere and these geese are local wildlife that deserve to be here just as much as we do. go ahead and try to potty train them if you want.. just have respect. and look at these little cuteys.. awwww..

Sorry, comment time is over.
