Saturday April 16 Goose Egg Oiling

Thanks to Walter Burke, Bristol's Parks and Recreation Director for initiating this. Oiling the geese eggs kills the embryo and prevents the eggs from hatching. The Mama goose continues to incubate and nothing happens. Mr. Burke is also experimenting with a product called "Flight Away" that is sprayed on athletic fields. It is primarily concentrated grape juice and the geese do not like it. This has been done at Guiteras Field with some success. Click on image once to enlarge.
