1.1 - Geese Crossing

MONKEY ISLAND, June 1998 - The migration of the Canada Goose has begun. Pictured here a family of seven migrates from the north side of Merrick Road to the south, apparently having befouled the north side to such an extent that even they could no longer deal with it.

Cars patiently wait out the birds, since federal environmental law prohibits mowing them down, as most people here would like to, given the birds' fondness for demonstrating the expression 'like grass through a goose'. (There is also a state law prohibiting motorists from mowing down photographers.)

Canada's filthiest export, yet protected by law. Perhaps this is why we only give them eighty cents to the dollar.
