Are geese laying eggs now in southern medina county?

Medina County Ohio geese

Hello,

In general, it's a bit early for laying and that happens more Mid-March.

I contacted the Medina County Park District and they have seen the geese beginning to defend territory but have not reached that "peak" aggression when eggs are present. Our wildlife specialist at OSU said that geese are pairing off now and looking for nesting territory to prepare for laying but there shouldn't be any eggs, yet.

If you have other questions, feel free to call the OSU Extension Office in Medina at 330-725-4911

Thank you!
