Goslings Growing Up.







Do you remember this little fluffy Canada gosling. (You can click this link for my earlier post images)

Well its been well over a month since I first spent some time with them at feeding time .. so how are they doing?







A week after my first encounter they were slightly larger, certainly a lot more vocal but still enjoying each others company for their post feeding nap.


So a month later their colour is changing and the development of their first true feathers are starting to show.


 Whilst they still remain under the watchful protection of their parents .....

.... at least one of them now prefers its own company and snoozes in the standing position.  FAB.

  5. I enjoyed going back to your previous posts and I love the angle you got. The geese here are very wary as people chase them and several years back shot all the parents leaving the goslings...not legal and awful to see. So I wonder if there are some of these females who were young then and remember. Thank you for linking up Frank.... Michelle
