Grazing geese


A mother goose keeps a lookout as her gosling eats grass near Horseshoe Pond on Tuesday, May 17. According to the Connecticut Department of Environmental Protection, female Canada geese lay 4-7 eggs, incubate them for about 28 days, and hatching occurs April through June. According to ducks.org , these birds exhibit ‘very strong family and pair bonds.’ — Kendra Baker photo
