Goslings by the Lake


The Canada Geese parents keep their babies close and show them how to spend the day. A couple of gray geese are often nearby and seem to be looking out for the new family. The parents are extremely protective and so far all the babies are thriving.


I posted earlier pictures of this goose family on April 24. It's fun watching the fluffy little geese but you can't get very close because the entire family will promptly swim away.
