Background: John Toto operates a digger - until a few days ago he was digging a sump for a new shopping centre being built on Long Island, New York. But work came to a halt when he found two Canadian geese nesting in his path - the eggs were laid and the geese refused to budge. So did soft-hearted John Toto. At first his boss objected - but Toto and the geese stood their ground and work has been held up for nearly two months, thirty days for hatching and another month before the goslings are ready to fly to Canada with their parents.
