Ganders are extremely defensive of the nesting goose. People need to understand the behavior of a wild bird and not approach the nesting goose or the gander guarding his mate.

Sometimes, if there are other clutches of goslings in the area, they will often group together in flocks called crèches and will be looked after by all the adults.
