Yes there was a neighborhood going into South Shore of Lake Bastrop that had pairs with goslings for a while but that was before the fire. Since then the only case I know of was the pair at Crystal Lake and that has been a while too. Maybe 2013-14 timeframe. I have heard there were geese over there around Lake Thunderbird but I never saw them and don't know if they had offspring. Also the retention pond on the King Ranch turf farm had a resident pair but it has been a while since I have been in there. The ponds by the entrance on Steven F. Austin Blvd off 71 (was gated and maybe still is ) sported a few these geese for a while...I saw a couple of older imm.s there once. I believe the Goebels lived in that subdivision or maybe still do and may have more insight on that.
