These soft and fluffy goslings were photographed at Andrew Haydon Park, which is located on the Ottawa River. Migrating Canada Geese and shorebirds stop over along the marshy edges of the river near the park. We were there in the early evening and the goslings were feeding along the paths. We were walking within a few feet of them. At one point the gaggle of geese moved and a little gosling busy eating hadn’t realized that he had been left behind. When he did, he loudly protested and hurried to catch up. He is the little guy squawking in the first picture. Once the gaggle of geese had moved in front of us they were beautifully back lit and I was able to take a number of pictures before we continued on with our walk.
