Volunteer Alexa Ferrell struggled to hold a squirming Canada goose before it was banded Tuesday at Jacobson Park in Lexington. About 475 Canada geese were banded at the park and at a farm in Fayette County as part of a population study. Each year at this time in various locations around the state, when the geese are molting and unable to fly, they are rounded up, banded, their genders identified and quickly released. The project is directed by the state Department of Fish and Wildlife.
