We used to canoe a river by me that also had a canoe rental place. I love feathers and one day there were at least 10 maybe more beautiful long geese feathers floating in a cove. I had my husband get me close enough to scoop them all up. There were 2 geese watching and of course they headed our way, pretty quickly. All my husband kept saying is you better hurry up their comming. Let me tell you I never paddled so fast, and the geese kept following us up river. My husband said they want their feathers back, I might have throw one back but finally they stopped following us.
My husband used to love telling the rental people the geese love when you feed them.
