Every year a pair of Canada Geese nests on the wetland behind our house. The outlet to the wetland flows under a road that is well-traveled, but it is there that the geese and their brood like to hang out. The young poke at insects along the roadside and in the lawn of the small house that abuts the road and the wetland. Most drivers seem to respect this annual event, slowing down, and waiting as necessary, to let the geese move their brood to the side of the road.
Here are a few shots (from my iPhone) of the goose family of nine -- two adults and seven goslings -- taken today.
