Following their birth in the previous month, which was documented in an earlier gallery, the 7 Canada goose goslings grew rapidly in June 2021. In this album, I share 30 photos spanning the entire month in chronological order (which is top-down, left-right in multi-column view) that show how much their appearances have changed during just four weeks.
An interesting story was when the Canada goose couples decides to move a bit with just five of the goslings. The other two were too preoccupied with feeding to realize that their family had left. When they made this realization, the chicks started to call just like chicken would when lost. Fortunately, the family reunited the next day.
Compared with the story of Mute Swan Family 1, which ended in the disappearance (and presumably death) of all cygnets. This pair of Canada geese appear very good at protecting their chicks. It is also the reason why I assume that the herons took the cygnets, as the swans chased the geese out of water, which also moved the goslings out of harm's way.
Below is a video documenting the growth of the goslings. The gallery can be found below.
