Canadian geese used to stop for a rest on a reservoir in my neighborhood. About 4 years ago one was seen floating. It had been shot. They haven't been back.
Geese are now rarely seen.
I live on the river, and the water bird population is less than before. Last year a blue heron started hanging around a couple of blocks away, and raiding a goldfish pond. The homeowner covered the pond with chicken wire, and that did the trick. The heron was back this year, and the chicken wire again was placed.
Makes me wonder if something is wrong with the fish in the river. The waters are not as polluted as they have been. I haven't seen any water birds going after fish this year.
There has been construction of a new bridge a few blocks downriver, so maybe the noise has sent them to a quieter area.
Or, they have all settled in your area.

I'm going to send up a dozen or so to these Folks. Our ballfield here in town is getting all crapped up by these Buzzards.
To get to the Geese Problem. Only links this way I guess.
