      As to the Bay Area, a semi-captive flock in Oakland was breeding by
      1956, and a feral population, thought to be moffitti in origin, was
      established in the San Francisco Bay area by 1959 (Lidicker & McCollum,
      1979, "Canada Goose Goose established as a breeding species in San
      Francisco Bay," Western Birds 10: 159-162). It has exploded from there.

      The above snippet is from Roberson & Tenney (1993) Atlas of the Breeding
      Birds of Monterey County, which goes on to explain the feral
      population's start and status there. Similar details are available in a
      number of other Breeding Bird Atlas project publications for their local
      county area.
