Goslings already ??

I was out by White Bear Lake yesterday and saw 3 goslings.

I thought it is early for them.

Holy cow, that is early, but with the early spring it's possible. Must be resident geese. Keep them hatching.

April 27th is the earliest hatch this year for the pond behind the building at work.

By May 1st I usually see my first gosslings at my place. Not this year though, but the birds are on their nests big time.

2-3 weeks ago while trapping beavers I found 3 goose eggs in the water. 1 nest (on a small bullrush bog) destroyed by large waves on a large lake and another nest ruined by a massive floating bog. Found the eggs laying on the bottom.

Saw my first goslings on Wednesday, then last night on the way home I must have saw 4 different batches. Then when I checked my pond at home, sure enough, the resident pair of geese had 6 little ones running the shoreline. Would like to check the weather 35 days ago and see what it was when they first started laying eggs...

On the way to work this morning I had to stop the car to let one fuzzy little yellow guy catch up to mom

Saw a pair of geese with at least three small, fuzzy goslings on a bike path between Hutch and Cedar Mills. The mother was sitting right on the path, and couldn't tell if there were more huddled up against her.

You guys should stop on by the levy in fergus. Id say 3/4 the geese down there have hatched lil ones already. Buggers were running all around the road back there.

Just noticed the first goslings up here in Itasca today, but no doubt they've been around for a couple of days.
