Sunday morning outing at the Technoparc: mom and dad and six goslings paddling around.
Just a few minutes earlier a noisy flock of geese landing in a nearby pond to feed and splash around. Why were they not with their partners raising more goslings? I wondered.
Turns out that for the first
couple of years young geese don't settle down to raise little ones.
The bird books didn't say so, but it looked like the flock must have
been a group of rowdy goose adolescents without responsbilities yet. Wonder what they did on Saturday night.
