Who's Watching the Goslings?

While The Husband and I were out earlier today running errands, we had to stop the car so I could get a photo of this.



This photo has at least 28 babies and only two adult geese.  There is more to the flock over a slight drop off behind these geese ... with two more adults and 25 or so additional babies ... for a total of four adults and 50+ goslings.  (The goslings wouldn't stand still so I could get an exact count.)

The only thing I can figure is that we accidently stumbled upon the local Canada Goose daycare center. 

Now we know where Canada Geese take their babies while they're at work during the day.

  1. I've never seen them when they are this size. How funny they are all in a large group. They must be city birds.♥♫

  2. That a lotta goslings! They must not have a ratio of adults to babies in their daycare system.

  4. Hi, thanks for sharing, will show to my husband, who just this week encountered a similar scene, tons of goslings with 4 adults geese. He was walking at lunchtime around the lake in the office complex and saw his area's gosling daycare! : )

  10. Connie - random question/favor! I was in Fredericksburg this week and ran across a pink climbing rose right around the corner from Hyperion coffee... I have to know what this is and if anyone there would know it would be you?!

  11. Jess, I know which rose you're talking about. Next time I'm downtown, I'll get a good look at it, and probably a coffee at Hyperion while I'm at it, and see if I can ID it. (I wanted to answer your question directly via email, but your email address isn't visible. I hope you see this.)

  13. Cute. We have a couple of pairs of Canadian geese that try to nest in our pasture every spring but I've never seen any babies. Coyotes probably get the eggs :(
