Identity crisis

Have you seen them?
The geese that build nests on tiny islands in the Black-topped Sea. You'd think that even though their former fields have become parking lots, they'd at least choose to settle on a grassy edge somewhere. But they choose these--barren, isolated, smack-dab in the middle of the parking lot! Is there something instinctive that leads them to these islands? Something in the site choosing process that says : whenever able, situate your nest on a spot separated from all other land, by a Sea?

Maybe I shouldn't worry. I mean--what's wrong with a goose raising her family next to parked cars? Its not like they'll imprint on one, right?

Sort of sad.
