Gotta Love those little Goslings!

Thursday, May 27th, 2010

When baby Canada geese, called goslings, emerge from their shells in springtime they have yellow feathers like baby ducklings. They follow their parents around in a goose parade for about two months until they are ready to learn to fly. By autumn, they accompany their parents on the southward migration.

I’ll just hang around here on the bank and eat some grass until they get in the water and then I can follow them.
