The Goslings

Here are this year's brood.  Six, last year there were eight.  Hard to believe by the end of August they will be completely indistinguishable from their parents.

They were already swimming the day they left the nest.  Confident little creatures!  But they still like to snuggle together in a group.


  1. Adorable. I live by a river and have enjoyed watching the ducklings grow up over the past month or so.

  2. Sweet! What is it about babies, of any species, that tugs at our heart strings? When I read about serial killers, or other criminals, I think that at some point, for no matter how short a time, that person must have melted someone's (his parents' hopefully?) heart.
