Second, and Third, Thoughts Over Killing of Prospect Park Geese

Prospect Park started after the Quaker burial ground was moved from near the corner of Houston and Bowery, Methodists from nearby moved elsewhere. I’ve read that there may be different types of Canada geese, some fly in the Great Atlantic Flyway, impossible to remove and those that live here in NYC. Kill every bird in North and South America and you may eliminate the threat of ospreys, for example, returning to the NY/CT/MA from northern Brazil, they almost were by DDT, not geese. John James Audubon, a NYC resident, was the first to tag birds and show they returned, why hasn’t some better science prevailed over this outright misdirected culling in our behalf? From my observation, they come from A2A (Algonquin to Adirondack area) and would testify as seen from the Fort Drum, NY. Perhaps they were sent here by development policy. From there Audubon was helped by Charles Lucien Bonaparte. No culling without science. NY Times City Room
