Yesterday afternoon, while storm clouds rolled across the region and communities were being devasted by tornadoes, two sets of geese swam around the far side of Goose Lake. Each pair of parents was escorting a single gosling.
I cannot be certain that one of the little ones hatched on our bottom step, but it’s rare to see geese with only one offspring, much less two sets. I think it’s fair to assume that one of the goslings is “ours” and so I’m making the claim.
I don’t anticipate another visit with Mama or Papa G but it was fun having our little chats while they were attending to the responsibilites of bringing Baby G into the exciting world of Goose Lake. It was a privilege. Way to go Mama! No hard feelings, Papa. Have a good life, Baby G!
