Goslings On Parade: Birdorable (#271)

Every spring season, adult Canada Geese come to stay along an improved section of the Lehigh Canal, one of my favorite places to walk when I am in Pennsylvania.

The canal is part of a larger national park, the Delaware and Lehigh National Heritage Corridor.  Brochures for the Corridor invite us to “follow history on the 165 mile path where America was built.”

The Canada Geese arrive at the canal in pairs sometime in late March or early April.  They mate, make their nests, lay their eggs, incubate and hatch them.   All during that time the many people who use the canal and its towpath are blissfully unaware that these bird families are forming.

Then one bright sunny day, out they come.  Wary yet prideful goose and gander, vigilant guides for their gosling children.

    Such really cute photos we always have them back home along the Ohio river and love watching them in the spring. However we met a wonderful couple from Alberta, Canada a few weeks ago and were informed several times that there proper names are Canada Geese not Canadian. Love your blogs happily travels.
