Nest Box Placement
- Canada Geese prefer nesting sites with good visibility in all directions.
- Nesting platforms help guard against flooding and ground predators.
- In urban environments, platforms may also be used to encourage nesting in more convenient areas, since nests in human-used areas can become a nuisance once parents begin defending the nest.
- Anchor the platform in 2–4' of water.
