Geese at Black River Park

Canadian goslings with their parents wander around at Black River Park in South Haven. The large goose population that flocks at city marinas and riverfront parks have caused headaches for some residents.

SOUTH HAVEN — There’s no doubt that Canadian geese have become a common site in the city of South Haven, especially over the past decade or so.

A growing number of geese are spreading their wings to gather at other grassy, well-watered spots in town, including Baseline Middle School, South Haven High School, Lake Michigan College, city parks, open spaces along the southern part of Indiana Avenue, even downtown.
