As regular CFZ-watchers will know, for some time Corinna has been doing a column for Animals & Men and a regular segment on On The Track... particularly about out-of-place birds and rare vagrants. There seem to be more and more bird stories from all over the world hitting the news these days so, to make room for them all - and to give them all equal and worthy coverage - she has set up this new blog to cover all things feathery and Fortean.

Police at Eastern Michigan University have issued a warning: “Beware of goose!”

04 April, 2019 15:36
The department says potentially aggressive geese have been spotted on campus and issued the warning with a video on Instagram showing one goose attacking and chasing a person in a school car park.
Police say the attack happened on the north end of the school’s campus in Ypsilanti. Two geese are nesting in the area, and the birds are protective.
University spokesman Geoff Larcom says it’s not unusual for geese to nest on campus at this time of year. He says several students have reported goose attacks, but no injuries have been reported.
Mr Larcom told “A few students have tried to take selfies of the geese when they are hissing, but we advise against that.”
