We were walking with a purpose today. The F-16’s were supposed to do a fly-over to honor all the healthcare workers and we wanted to see them. We still took our normal walk, but there wasn’t much to see at first. We were kind of disappointed with the F-16 fly-over show too. We briefly saw them twice, but they were at such a distance that it was just a quick glimpse and that was it. However, we saw not one, but two geese families with their baby goslings. They were a much better show indeed.
Before I get to the goslings though, I want to introduce a new friend. This is a house finch. I wasn’t sure if I got him or not because he is just a tiny little thing and he was perched up high in the tree. But, it looks like I did.
Now for the stars of the day … This is the first family on lake 4. Mom had 6 babies.
This one made me laugh. Mom is already giving one of the babies a scolding for something. I love it. One of them is already a rebel.
The goslings are getting curious.
The second goose family was up on lake 3. They had 4 babies that looked to be even a little younger than the babies on lake 4. It looks like dad is doing his best to keep the family in line, even with a broken wing.
I LOVE this one guy’s defiant rebel attitude.
Peek-a-boo. I see you.
I hope you enjoy our goslings as much as we do. Stay safe and stay well Everyone. ‘Til next time.
