CANADA GEESE WITH GOSLINGS

It was super seeing these sweet goslings.  

Darling little babes.  

New parents being very protective of their young.  No humans got too close but other geese did. 

Who is that?

Interlopers?

This cacophony continues for some time. Eventually the goose on the right flew down and chased said interloper off. 
Interloper argy-bargy.  On your bike and don’t come back!

Life in the garden...
takes on a more peaceful tone. 
Goslings go about what goslings do, with not a care in the world.  
But then this one chases off another interloper!  
The interloper wisely left. 

A lot of territories and babies being protected today, and the protector keeps a wary eye on his babies and their surroundings.  

I have my own protector who advises me not to get too close.  No problem, the camera does its job!

Thanks for stopping by and enjoy your day.

  1. I have been snapping these babies & parents, too! But have not gotten NEAR as good pictures as you did. Funny how they make their necks crooked and run after us. Good thing we have zooms so we don't stress them out too much!

    1. Wow! Thanks for letting me know. I love the geography aspect but definitely not the accuracy. I wonder if I can just set it to show the country? I will look into that for sure.

  10. Canada geese are fierce protectors. You want to keep your distance when they have little ones.

    1. Thanks Red, they are indeed :) I appreciate the good advice and keep my distance while using my zoom. Other geese did get too close and they were charged at several times. It was a very interesting study in geese behavior.

  14. I was enamored by baby geese too. I really should have done a blog post about our encounter, but I posted the pictures on Facebook. Ask Gregg to show you the pictures :)

  15. The geese are very protective of their young. On one of the main thoroughfares here in Tulsa some of the geese take their goslings across a major street. Many times some of the homeless population gets out in the street to safeguard the crossing. I love it.

  16. These are so sweet, Denise. A bit smaller than the ones I saw today (and when it comes to goslings, smaller is cuter!). Don't you love to watch them learn, eat, swim, follow? I adore each and every photo!
