Introducing… the goslings!

Just recently, I was walking down the street when I saw a goose couple with their babies. I was very excited and happy because those babies looked very young. Seeing something like that is exactly why I try to remember to take my camera with me wherever I go. So, I got the camera out and took a few pictures of these young birds and their parents.

Aren’t they adorable? They are so fuzzy, and they have such cute little beaks. They look happy snuggling with their siblings.

Here they are, following their parents.

The goslings are learning how to peck at the ground to find food. Their favorite foods are grass and weeds. As babies, the goslings have to stay on dry land and not go into the pond because they could drown. They are covered by down and that absorbs water. Eventually, they will become waterfowl like their parents.

In the afternoon, the goslings are relaxed and happy. I took these pictures during a second visit to the goose family. It was then that I saw that there was a second goose couple with babies. I think (but am not totally sure) that there are a total of nine goslings

explore a wondrous new world
the sweetness of spring
