There's a lot of honking going on at a suburban New York high school parking lot, and it's not coming from the drivers.

CBS New York (http://cbsloc.al/1J2EfaM ) says a foul-tempered Canada goose has taken over the lot at White Plains High School.

The honking and hissing interloper has been swooping down and chasing people.

His actions are well-intended: He's protecting his mate, who's nesting on top of a storage garage.

The area occupied by the loud-mouth and his lovebird has now been cordoned off with yellow tape.

Principal Ellen Doherty calls it a fun, "teachable moment."

Science teachers are discussing the geese. Journalism students are writing about them.

Wildlife officials will relocate the family once the goslings hatch.
