We went to feed the ducks our bread ends and got the Canadian Geese instead, Aren't they suppose to be in Canada by now ???? :-) So we get there and we are quickly approached, they were aggressive, next thing we know, across the pond swimming towards us in a bunch with goslings, how cute, but we don't have enough bread so we jumped back into our family truckster! YIKES, we still watched them but felt bad we didn't have enough bread for all of them!
Description - young: Newly hatched Canada Geese look much like ducklings with yellow and gray feathers and a dark bill. But within a week they grow to be rather awkward-looking, fuzzy gray birds.

Some info. from General: They are famous for their life-long mating, though a widowed goose will usually choose another mate. By nine to ten weeks old, they've grown their flight feathers and look like slightly smaller versions of the adult.The newly hatched babies (called 'goslings') are able to swim immediately. The male and female goose both accompany the babies during their swims.
Goslings can dive and swim for 30-40 feet underwater and they eat almost continuously to attain growth for the first migration flight.
