Dig Baton Rouge

Some geese choose Louisiana over migration north

For some geese, Louisiana is the next best thing to the North.

Some Canada geese care choosing to stay in Baton Rouge rather than making the trip to the arctic this spring, The Advocate reports. This is due to the availability of food and a decent habitat paired with protection from predators.

“Migration is a really stressful time for birds. If they don’t have to do it, they won’t,” said Kevin Ringelman, assistant professor of waterfowl ecology and management with the LSU Agricultural Center and School of Renewable Natural Resources, according to The Advocate. “If they can eat new shoots on a golf course, there’s no reason to migrate to the Arctic.”
