EASTVALE, Calif. (AP) - There are a lot of feathers floating around Eleanor Roosevelt High School in Eastvale, California, but not because of questionable fashion choices at prom. A pair of Canada Geese has chosen the campus quad for their nest.

The Riverside Press-Enterprise reports (https://bit.ly/1FesTON ) that a mother goose and her mate have been nesting at the campus for the past five years, becoming a symbol of spring for the campus.

The Humane Club and Head Custodian Adan Esparza have roped off a section of the quad to keep both the students and the eggs safe. There is also a “bird guard” on duty.

California law says the goose eggs cannot be touched. Esparza said last year Animal Control officials took the goslings to an off-campus location after birth.
