Canada goose droppings 2sq

Canada goose droppings in long grass.

Although grouped together the individual cylindrical droppings are distinguishable. These droppings are not fresh, as they are starting to dry out and darken, even though some nitrogenous deposit still remains. They were found near a nest at Rakau Hamama Lagoon near Hokio Beach in the Manawatu.
