Watch Your Step!

We have some visitors that arrived recently. You may have seen or heard them along the lake side of Salem Green’s property. The Canadian Geese are the most common water fowl species in North America. These birds are very recognizable by their long black neck, white chin strap, V-shape flight pattern and of course the obvious honking noise that we’ve been hearing.
Since geese are grazers and mainly consume seeds, grass and aquatic plants, the lake area by Salem Green is a great place for them to get in a good feast before heading south for the winter. Although we enjoy having natures creatures in our backyards,these birds can become a nuisance and stick around longer than they are welcome.
We just want to remind residents: DO NOT feed any animals or birds on the property. Feeding these animals only causes them to stay longer and look for additional food sources like our dumpsters, garbage containers and possibly plants on patios.
