Friday the "pond" around Foster Island was very low, indeed. I thought (from a distance) these were ducks, but, alas, no.
On the River side of the island, my eagle-eyed daughter, VeggiGirl, wondered if she spotted goslings. Being terribly nearsighted, I swung up my trusty camera and zoomed in for a shot.
Yes, indeed; we have our first gosling sighting of 2012!
One more zoom gave us a good count of seven. Lucky seven for April 2012.
A little hard to imagine that within a couple of months, local golfers and gardeners will be cursing these cuties. I can sympathise; my shoes come home caked in goose-poop every time. Right now, however, they make me go mushy with adoration.
Rain coming means rapid River. We may not seen any more babies for another week or so.
