Not far from our house is an old mill pond that’s been cleaned up and has become a nice place to walk and sit a bit to watch the Canada Geese that make it home. When we first moved into our house there was a single pair but over the years the little flock has expanded. There’s one mamma who looks as if she doesn’t belong but she and her mate return every year and continue to raise chicks.
Often cars must stop and wait for the geese and their babies to cross the road. I always enjoy watching the goslings strung out in a row paddling along behind their mammas in search of a few tasty morsels.
