I can

This morning started goose season again in WV and I was planning to go but last night I was lying in bed and heard them fly over the house at 12:10 am! I did not go this morning for several reasons but how can you hunt birds that fly at night? We do live in a small town with the lakes just outside of it so I guess they use the city lights

Age Records Information on life span is collected every time a banded bird is reported to the Bird Banding Laboratory in Laurel, Maryland. And the record ages for some waterfowl species might surprise you.
• Canada goose, 33 years, 3 months
• Canvasback, 29 years, 6 months
• Lesser snow goose, 27 years, 6 months
• Black duck, 26 years, 5 months
• Mallard 26 years, 4 months
• Greater white-fronted goose, 23 years, 6 months
• Blue-winged teal, 23 years, 3 months
• Redhead, 22 years, 7 months
• Ross’s goose, 22 years, 6 months
• Wood duck, 22 years, 6 months

Some neat facts I found after reading this thread.
