Father Goose aka Bill Lishman

Submitted by on November 3, 2009 – 6:25 am2 Comments

This is a wonderful video of Father Goose, also know as Bill Lishman, teaching birds how to migrate with an ultralight aircraft. You may have heard of Operation Migration which Bill co-founded with Joe Duff back in 1994. You can follow their current migration in the Field Journal on the Operation Migration website.

Watching the video, I can’t help but get just a little bit jealous. What a great job! Maybe he would allow passengers on his next journey.
