Spring and birth, the babies have arrived.

Our backyard.

Thursday there were seven eggs in a nest across the lake.

Mom was still on the nest with Dad watching over

We found the nest empty on Saturday

We were surprised to see all seven eggs survive to become these cute little guys.

2. My dear unapatriciated!

How lucky for you, living in such a beautiful place!

And those goslings are adorable...

I hope you'll be able to photograph them as they grow up. That would be way cool!

Thanks for sharing!

6. Floofies!

One of the main things I miss now that I don't live on a lake any longer. When they swam by our breakwall every day, we used to do a head count (beak count?) Yep, it's sad when the number goes down. But it's nice to see the survivors grow, and mom being so attentive.
