Young Canada Geese for World Bird Wednesday

This watchful parent is doing its parentage job well by heeping a watchful eye on its young brood as they are feeding near a pond.
They didn't stray too far from the adult Canada and I imagine they would all take to the pond quickly if danger threatened. I knew this goose family would probably be here as I had seen them swimming in the pond earlier this week.
I see one little gosling has found its voice, its open mouth suggests it might be squawking.
You have a wonderful looking family Mamma or Papa Goose. You are doing a wonderful job guarding them! Keep taking care with them!

These geese certainly make good parents. They are constantly on watch, over their young. Lovely captures of the family.

They sure do look after their family don't they? Boom & Gary of the Vermilon River, Canada.

They are very cute! I've seen many Canada geese families around here now, and it cracks me up how they often travel in a single-file line with one parent in the front and one in the back!
