Ramble with Storm: Goslings

storm3x Mulling things on my morning ramble

with Storm, the family's mixed Lab.

Well, the geese on the island weren't on their nest yesterday morning. So I started looking around.

Out in the main part of the south town pond, I found the pair of them protectively flanking goslings.

I counted five or six.

If my memory is right, that is pretty close to normal hatching date, maybe a couple days later than usual.

Wild April weather or not, the marks of the seasons march on.

This morning, another one of the nesting pairs was swimming with goslings.

I am curious if the usual seven pairs nested around the town pond or not.

I'll know in a few days.

Odd morning. The sun was shining. Showers are in the forecast.
