Other Wildlife Concerns

Please call the Wildlife Hotline (780-914-4118) for advice. If we are closed, please leave a message. Then, research the animal and the issue you are noticing. What you are witnessing might be perfectly normal! A mother duck may pretend to have a broken wing if she feels her babies are threatened, grounded birds may just be fledglings, etc. If you cannot find the answer you are looking for in your research, please monitor the animal in question and WILDNorth will call you back as soon as possible.

Common calls:

Canada Geese nesting in high up areas:
Canada Geese have been known to nest in high up areas, away from predators. Goslings are very hardy creatures, and can withstand quite a long drop.

It is normal for Canada Geese to nest on or near construction sites, rooftops, balconies, parking lots, decks, yards, walkways, and other types of human built structures. Canada Geese are protected under the Migratory Birds Convention Act, and it is illegal to tamper with a nest once it is made.

We cannot move these goose families to a safer place, but are here should they get injured or if they are trapped.
