Goslings!!! and a Duck

I have seen reports of goslings at both the Assiniboine Park Zoo and at Fort Whyte Alive, but I haven’t seen any of those ones.  This morning though I saw my first goslings of the year!

It is an absolutely beautiful morning after a full day of rain yesterday.  The sun is shining and everything is bright and clean from the rains.  I saw the 2 adult Canada Geese on the bank of the Red River at a distance and wondered if they might have some babies to show me.  The weeds were much too high to be able to see anything so tiny, but I was sure that they would head into the water when Chester and I got closer – and I was right.  🙂

The geese normally disappear within a few days of the chicks hatching, so I’ve never been able to watch them grow much.  It would be nice if this pair and the 7 adorable Goslings stayed.

This Mallard Duck had been close to shore and possibly near his mate, but he swam away as Chester and I approached.  Hopefully I’ll be seeing little Ducklings soon.
