Canada Goose And Goslings 

Why won’t they allow elephants in public swimming pools?

Because they might let down their trunks.

Interesting Fact: Individual Canada Geese from most populations make annual northward migrations after breeding. Nonbreeding geese, or those that lost nests early in the breeding season, may move anywhere from several kilometers to more than 1500 km northward. There they take advantage of vegetation in an earlier state of growth to fuel their molt. Even members of “resident” populations, which do not migrate southward in winter, will move north in late summer to molt.  ( https://www.allaboutbirds.org/guide/Canada_Goose/lifehistory )

    • I know what you mean, Canada Geese are over population around the tri state area. Thank you for stopping by and sharing your thoughts. Happy Blogging! 🙂

  1. Yep, it’s happening here in Western New York now . Love seeing all those babies, it’s funny how you have to remind people not to get too close.
    Great shot!!!

  2. I loved this. Reminded me of two things. Twice a year we can drive North to an area where thousands of Snow Geese stop for a break (for days) in the Tulip fields. What an amazing and spectacular sight that is…the sounds and the thrill of their taking off in unison like a massive white wave up into the sky! But the most recent thing is a couple of days ago I was stuck in a massive traffic jam. The position I sat in for 15 minutes was on the on-ramp to the freeway that curved itself around a pond and guess who was there? I got to enjoy watching the cousins of your Canadian Goose family (mom, dad and 8 goslings). Babies were at that age when they try to copy the adults by poking their bills down into the mud for something yummy, but couldn’t keep their balance and would topple over every time. Most enjoyable traffic jam ever! Love your site!

    • That is really cool, if all the traffic jams had something entertaining like that. And I am amazed by the snow geese stop that you speak off, it’s probably such an amazing sight. Thank you very much for stopping by and sharing your stories with us. Happy Blogging! 🙂
