Long John is the name given to one of Amy Alden's rescued Canada geese. He is a leader of the flock, often flying in front. He kept at eye-level with Amy during flights. He led his siblings away from the Aldens when the flock encountered a group of wild geese heading South on the migration route to North Carolina. The Aldens had to follow the group not to lose them, but Amy was easily able to call them back the following morning.
