Though some consider Canada geese to be a “nuisance” species, they sure have cute goslings. I watched these young ones growing up fast in Bend, Oregon.
Here’s what they looked like a week later.
When I was out kayaking at Prineville Reservoir, these recently-hatched goslings struggled to conquer the huge-to-them wall.
With lots of encouragement from their parents, they finally made it. These little ones showed their incredible ability to adapt.
Canada geese are common in a wide variety of habitats. This pair nested on top of a cliff…
with a scenic view. Smart birds!
