Follow The Leader

Posted in

In a pond near Big Horn on Monday afternoon follow the leader appeared to be the lesson of the day. The five young goslings were showing off their skills as mom led the clutch with dad bringing up the rear. These five goslings are only days old. At the age of 1-2 days they can walk, swim, feed and even dive. One even started to "swim away from home" only to be rounded up by mom. Scroll down to view more of this pair of Canada Geese and their clutch of five goslings. For more visit: http://www.allaboutbirds.org/gui...

The young goslings seem at home on land as well as in the water. Flying comes later - about the same time the adults regain their flight feathers.
