Update on the Baby Geese at Columbus Park May 19, 2009

When we checked yesterday, all five baby geese at Columbus Park had grown larger and were doing well:

The baby geese looked like they weighed about twice as much as they had two weeks before (but we didn't try to pick them up).

The two-week-old Canada Geese twice as heavy as when they hatched (but we didn't try to pick them up).

Just don’t get too close, or their parents hiss and snap at you:

The parent Canada Geese are very protective -- if you get too close to their babies, they'll chase you away!

  1. Wow! Aggressive parents! We have some nearby we’ve been thinking of trying to photograph. We didn’t know we’d be putting ourselves in physical danger! =) Thanks for the great pics!
