European Stars And Stripes (Newspaper) - January 27, 1961, Darmstadt, HesseThe familiar honk Honky of goo Edom is. Not what it in undo to Jet u i probably a greeting ceremony hello you old Goose by Thomas r. Henry Nana staff writer Goose is gentleman or a lady. When it meets old friends it exchanges with them characteristic formal greetings much in the manner of humans. Or. Robert b. Klopman of the Cornel University ornithological Laboratory who reported the practice in a recent paper said it might also be found among other waterfowl but it has so far been observed Only among geese. These Birds he said characteristically establish Small groups or flocks within the population As a whole. Identity of such groups often is maintained for months or years perhaps the most striking display typical of such an integrated group is the greeting ceremony. A Bird taking part in this display keeps its body laterally oriented to that of its neighbor. As the neck is extended toward the ground a characteristic Call is Given. The participants in the ceremony normally have had some previous close personal the greeting display Klopman said. I particularly evident after a Goose has been in a fight with some member of another group. If it polishes off its enemy it apparently turns to its friends with a sort of that s the end of that bum attitude. When a flock is disturbed for some general reason Klopman said greeting often follows the disturbance. Should for instance a person approach a flock of geese quickly the Birds Retreat move to Ward one another and Greet. The geese Greet almost exclusively with fellow flock members o personal friends. This attests to the Strong personal motivation underly i ing the the greeting is almost always exchanged when a Goose comes Back to its own groups of cronies after an absence.
