    I located the website via query, only a few days before registering and posting. I actually know very few people in Kentucky, and to the best of my knowledge do not know anyone on the website. I did just find a fairly recent thread on coyotes, which was rather informative, with very interesting personal encounters.

    If someone were to know specific locales of big flocks of pilgrim geese, would said person perhaps be privy to specific locales of stated hordes of mallards? Hypothetically of course.

    Lol, I thought someone might try to blackmail me. Not happening! I am protecting my spot (and myself, of course) just like I do my homebreak!

    Same thing happened to me, except I never saw that goose again when I came back to papaws.

    Probably in the kitchen Ky
    My grandparents had these geese about 15 years ago.
    There are probably a bunch at basil griffin park in bowling green..
    Along with a pair of eqyptian geese I saw last year.

    Are you certain that you are old enough to go way back?

    I’m not sure how to respond and that scares me.

    Thank you. I do not see a Springs Park, but there appears to be a Basil Griffin Park with geese, while none of them appear to be Pilgrims. I could not tell you how they nor any other geese taste, and the same goes for ducks, but the Pilgrim must be fairly good, to have been inducted into this association, I guess?

    "The Pilgrim was admitted into the American Poultry Association's Standard of Perfection in 1939."

    My apologies, yes, Basil Griffin is the correct name for the park. Locals call it Three Springs. I swore I saw a few when I was out there a month or so ago. I hope you didn't drive a long eay.

    No apologies necessary, Sir. I greatly appreciate the information. I have yet to visit that park and was simply commenting upon relevant images online.
