Looking outside today to check on the two geese that we have nesting, I found a wonderful surprise! Our goose population has increased with the arrival of four adorable little yellow and black babies.
The proud parental geese keep close tabs on the little ones. We had quite a time getting pictures as any movement outside would cause the family to quickly go away from us. The babies stay close to mom and at times are underneath her when she is walking. The father goose is always on the watch, reminding me of the terminator, as he is constantly looking all around, making sure things are safe for his family to be out.
The Webb family spent a lot of time on our beach today, and in the evening they walked around the edge of the pond and swam from one side to the other--quite a workout for the little ones.
We will keep you posted on their progress, with pictures if we can get close enough. You might have to look closely to see the babies but I assure you that the family is all together.
If anyone has ideas for names we are open to suggestions as all critters on our property are given names.
Check back in to see what the little ones are doing.
