The Goose that Thought He was a Sandhill Crane

In Homer, Alaska, there lives a goose who thinks he is a Sandhill Crane. He travels all over Homer with the cranes, eating, sleeping, and flying with them. He takes no guff from any of the cranes. It will be interesting to see if the goose makes it down to the wintering grounds in California with the cranes and back again this spring.
