Our Canada Geese Family is Grown.

They came to visit our garden today and they are all grown up but still staying with Mom and Dad.  I think they may stay together and fly south when it starts to get cold.
One of their favorite things to do is graze on our riverside lawns.

When they've eaten their fill, they move closer to the river.
Every once in a while they stretch those wings and flutter them wide.  They sometimes just lie around enjoying some rest. 
A bit of preening goes a long way to making them so presentable and handsome.

But when the security guard comes in his automobile, on a signal from every watchful Dad, they head in single file into the reeds and down to the water's edge away from humans.
Its been wonderful watching this family grow the last couple of months, from little balls of fluff to tall adults with their true feathers and colors.
Have a Good Day.
