It's been a long time coming for this long-mated pair of Canadian Geese.  They have been nesting in our neighborhood pond for years.  And each Spring they build  a nest in a great spot right next to the waterfall/damn where it would be difficult for predators to find.  But, neighbors nearby have been addling the eggs (with a permit) for years, because they do not want the pond overrun by geese and their droppings.

So, the sad tale has been this pair has never experienced the joy of seeing their eggs hatch and then raising their young...............until this year.

I am so happy to share the photo of the babies and one of their parents with you.  They were running away from me as I was trying to capture their photo but you can see the goslings are growing up so fast.  I am delighted by the sight of this family. The parents are so so proud and are keeping their young ones close. 

Just a delightful late Spring day to see this happy family in our pond.

This is the cutest photo that I've ever seen. I wish we had a pond close to our house too. My dream is to have a barn and to pet animals. I really love animals since I was a kid. Now I'm saving up money to buy a place where I can start a place to pet different kinds of animals.
