9 Goslings in a Row

Back on May 18, 2009, I posted photos of 3 small goslings in the pond. They were only days old.

We had been wondering where all the goslings were, usually we have up to 4 sets of parents and babies. Until May 18, NADDA.

Six days later, around 6ish in the afternoon, we spied these 9 and parents down by the pond. These kids are about a month old. They are some of our MIA's.

Discovered they had made their homes this year across the street in neighbor's 'dug pond'. We don't know why, but, have to wonder --- did the arrival in our 'natural hole in the ground pond' of either Mr. Mink or Mr. Muskrat have anything to do with the move??

Photo is of the kids and parents charging up the hill, headed for home in neighbor's pond.

Distance between ponds, is at least 400 yards and one street.
