Coming Ashore

Geese at Shenandoah River Lakes


The goslings and their parents are Canada Geese, descended from wild geese who now live at the lake year-round. They are accompanied by Gray Geese, who are descended from domestic geese but now live away from the farm on the community lake.

  7. Geese are lovely to look at but can be a bit aggressive. They always amaze me during take off. How such a large bird can become airborne is a wonderment.

  10. It is hard to tell most of our baby geese from the parents. They sure do grow fast.
