The Goslings Are Growing

The baby geese on our lake grew quickly are are starting to look like their parents. See how they have white bands around their chins like adult Canada Geese.

Recently I discovered that what I thought was one family with six goslings was actually two different families with a total of twelve goslings. And then I saw something even more exciting: a third couple has new babies! Wow, we are going to be overpopulated with geese this year!

Here we see the new family with one of the older families floating along behind them.


  1. wow! that's awesome to see the different ages!

  2. Ours are still in their fluff... but sure are getting big.

  3. Just found your blog. We were visiting Shenandoah just a month ago. Had a wonderful time. So I look forward to following your posts.

  4. They are so cute when they are just a little ball of fluffy feathers. Then they get older and poop all over the place.

  5. Oh, that's so great! Love it!

  6. What a treat. They're so much fun to watch.. those little fuzzy darlings.
