Canadian Geese Babies




















This was taken last year (with my old camera) at Seney National Wildlife Refuge in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan. I was in the mood to post this as I am so envious of all the other bird babies I'm seeing on everyone else's site. You can see six babies here and from what I've read they typically lay a clutch of 5-7 eggs. By the way, did you know each individual egg takes a day to lay?? Hmm....doesn't sound fun.

That is a great picture, Shelley! Looks like Mom & Dad are arguing about whether they should take the Nature Trail or not. Very sweet babies!

Sandy - I have new respect for the mama bird.

Jess - the more bird babies the better!

Sandpiper - thank you - I always enjoy yours!

Stacy - thanks and good to hear!

Birdgirl - very funny - I think you're right - all those babies would be hard to manage!
