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.

Great idea! 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.
