Geese Family Adventure with 4 Babies

I was excited to see our Geese Family going for a small excursion. Mom and Dad with 4 babies (goslings) in between.  Geese mate for life.
They have a daily adventure to go across the small area of water to let the kids play.
After playing a moment the parents say "lets go back home".   I like the way it takes a moment to get the group in order, just like us humans.
They go back home orderly as the first picture shows.   

Happy Mothers Day with a glimpse of nature!

That was so cute thanks for sharing. Now that I live it the city, I miss seeing all the real wildlife. Have a great Mothers Day.

Have you read "Make Way for Ducklings?" Your post reminds me of that. On Easter morning, there was a gaggle of baby geese crossing the road with their mom and dad! It was so cute. You should have seen their little feet move when our car moved closer! I wished I'd had my camera with me! Love your picts! Glad you got it!

Happy Mothers Day!

We have a pond near our home with lots of geese, ducks, cranes and other birds. It is so precious to see the new babies following their parents in the spring! Thank you for this heartwarming post :)

Tracy said...

well, that's one endearing quality about geese; they mate for life. At least they aren't floosies...

Last week 5 goslings were hatched in the pond behind our house - they are so adorable! I was watching how naturally they just stay together and instinctively just stay w/their parents and I mused to my hubby - now why don't our children do that?! Ha! I posted some pics on FB, I need to get them up on my blog too.
