Travel & Geography / Adventure Exploration & Travel / Father Goose: The Adventures of a Wildlife Hero by Lishman, William Lishman, William           Book Description: Lishman has achieved what many thought to be impossible. He has succeeded in modifying the migratory pattern of the Canada Goose. Due to human interference with their habitat, many birds who are by nature migratory species, no longer depart for southern climes at the onset of winter. By raising a flock of Canada Geese from egg to adulthood, Lishman literally imprinted himself on the flock - they believed he was indeed their `Father Goose`. In October 1993 Lishman took off from his Toronto farm in a microlight. Eighteen birds followed in a V-formation all the way to Virginia. The following April the branded flock returned to Lishman`s farm to greet their surrogate father. Father Goose is a fascinating tale of a modern-day renaissance man and an ecological hero. : : Synopsis: Due to human interference with their habitat, many migratory birds no longer fly south in winter. Lishman raised a flock of Canada geese from egg to adulthood and, using a microlight aircraft, taught them to follow him on their migratory route. They did indeed believe that he was their Father Goose. The 18 birds who took off after Lishman in his aircraft in October 1994 have since returned to his Toronto farm. The publication of this book was arranged to coincide with the release of a feature film documenting Lishmans work.Comments: pristine - as new- immediate availability Orion paperback1995.
