A mother of the earth waddling along with three fuzzy yellow goslings. A true delight to see this past weekend, after Earth Day and with the celebration of Mother’s Day.
I’m used to seeing the Canada geese fly overhead in the familiar V-shaped formation and in long wavy lines high in the air, honking loudly as they go.
I’m used to seeing Canada geese in marshes, by lakes and fields. When I saw the black head and neck with white bib under the chin and grayish-brown back and wings, I thought nothing of it. Although it is a large goose sometimes over five feet, it is one of the most common goose that I see.
It was a true delight to see three goslings, yellow the color of spring, trailing the mother and following her lead. The gander was also close by.
She is a beautiful example of a mother earth.
