Do Canadian geese become attached to people? I was entering a department store the other day and saw one standing outside the door, looking inside. I asked if he was waiting for someone, but of course he didn't answer. When I left the building, he was still there, sitting down and looking inside. I'm sure he wasn't waiting for another goose. If one had been in the store I would've noticed.

I don't know the answer but think this is an interesting question... Do birds become attached to people? Maybe it was a French-speaking Canada goose and didn't understand your question? :o) But you're right: if one had been in the store someone surely would have noticed. That's not to say that he wasn't waiting for another goose. They could have agreed to meet outside the store, and the one got there early and was just passing time looking in the store...

I hadn't thought of that. It isn't a very busy store. It could very well be a regular gathering place for them. He was watching the funny people while he waited. I could have said "au revoir" when I left. What an adorable cat! My cat was sitting on the desk, and I showed her, but she doesn't pay much attention to pictures.
