Special Edition: Birdie Babies

We have our first birdie babies. There are five of the most adorable baby goslings floating around the pond with their mom and pop. They are Canada Geese (Brana canadensis) goslings. They are so cute, I love to see the baby geese and ducks in the spring time. I'm glad we have some here at the ranch. I wonder if the cinnamon teals that have been hanging around will have some ducklings. I hope so, it would be fun to see a pond full of baby birdies.
