Today’s photos are brought to you by the family of Canada geese I saw walking this morning.
So this year there are quite a few geese pairs that are raising their first brood of the year.
This pair has hatched four for the first round of young this year.
They actually managed to slow the little bit of traffic down this morning as they were playing in the street, before deciding to go graze in the grass.
I love how cute and fuzzy the young gosling look, though I was smart and stayed a good distance away from them. I don’t need to tangle with overprotective geese parents–they’re technically mean enough as it is without them thinking I’m a threat. Though since they’ve already started having broods–my early morning walks may be curtailed due to just the normal number of geese at the lake.
Though I can always take the morning walk and try to see how many different song birds I can find (instead of looking for different waterfowl). Decisions, decisions, decisions—we’ll have to see how the summer goes.
