Article Correctness Is Author's Responsibility: Structures near airports increase risk of airplane-goose collisions

(University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, News Bureau) From mid-November 2015 through February 2016, scientists used GPS transmitters to track the movements of Canada geese near Midway International Airport in Chicago. They discovered that -- in the colder months, at least -- some geese are hanging out on rooftops, in a rail yard and in a canal close to Midway's runways. This behavior increases the danger of collisions between geese and airplanes, the researchers say.
