Crop humans from pictures of Canadian Geese or leave for data on habituation?

I have several high quality, close up pictures of Canadian geese (they just hang around this park/fishing pier). The pictures have humans (my little humans to be specific). I can crop them out easily, but I was curious if the evidence of habituation might of use or if I should just crop them. TIA

Welcome to the forum!

Either option is perfectly acceptable as long as the geese can be identified from the photos. What I suggest: uploaded a cropped 1:1 photo (as described in this thread) as the first photo of the observation, and include the uncropped photo with evidence of habituation as the second photo in the same observation.

Thank you for the response! I actually have another question and I can’t seem to find an answer to, is it appropriate to ask here or should I make a another thread?

My pleasure. If it is about a different topic, it is best to create a new thread.


I think @That_Bug_Guy has specifically found the exact solution to this problem in his observation of Branta canadensis, I think it’s definitely worth considering…


Excellent, I love it.


Look, it already spreading,


I guess that makes it peer-reviewed and it can now be claimed as a widely-accepted method?
