I’m thinking the area bounded by the south shore of Cayuga Lake (say out 100-ft), the base of the hills, and south to the bridge to nowhere.
We might as well add mallards to the survey – I’m always surprised at the locations where they nest within the city. I’m happy to put a map online and update it with nests and gosling locations, but if someone else wants to do this that would be welcome.

It would be good to get an idea of pairs, and if possible nest locations, while nesting is going on. Maybe later an idea of young produced. What area did you want to cover? At Stewart Park yesterday during a brief cruise through in the taxi I tallied at least 16 pairs of geese plus several others that were not obviously paired. I don't know whether the pairs have nests, and if so whether they commute to Stewart Park to graze. --Dave Nutter -- Cayugabirds-L List Info: http://www.NortheastBirding.com/CayugabirdsWELCOME http://www.NortheastBirding.com/CayugabirdsRULES http://www.NortheastBirding.com/CayugabirdsSubscribeConfigurationLeave.htm ARCHIVES: 1) http://email@example.com/maillist.html 2) http://www.surfbirds.com/birdingmail/Group/Cayugabirds 3) http://birdingonthe.net/mailinglists/CAYU.html Please submit your observations to eBird: http://ebird.org/content/ebird/ --
