PLAINVIEW, N.Y. — Some Long Island Expressway drivers may be grousing about geese when they discuss their morning rush-hour delays.

Newsday says an HOV lane in Plainview was closed for about 15 minutes Monday as police herded several baby geese to safety.

They got the goslings into a large cardboard box next to the center barrier. The hissing mother flew above it.

The new whereabouts of the relocated fowl was not immediately known.
