Family Number Two scootin’ down the hill. How fast my youngins’ are growing! Isn’t it odd but the two Canada Geese families have not appeared together since the original day of discovery. In fact, I haven’t seen Family Number One at all.
I apologize for the poor quality photo but it’s important to remember that my waterfowl are wild animals and not park pets. My ducks are always skittish but the geese tolerate me quite well—except when there are offspring involved. With tiny tots in tow they are on guard at all times. Hopefully, after years of tender loving care, I will earn the total trust of my web-footed friends (like my friend Choo with her flocks!) but for now I will respect their privacy and keep to a distance.
