I always feel blessed when I get to see baby birds, goslings and ducklings. They grow up so quickly and they usually go through an ugly duckling stage. The ducklings that I saw along Meade Creek in Peterborough were not quite at the ‘ugly’ stage but they were no longer the cute fuzzy babies that they once were.
I was surprised how close the mother let me go up to her brood. The geese on the other hand were much more protective and cut me off when I tried to get closer.
