Huey, Dewey, Louie, and Webby

Every year, Illinois hosts a large number of Canadian geese. I tracked one such family over 6 weeks in Itasca, IL. Mom-goose and Dad-goose are quite protective of their newborns. They make an aggressive hissing sound when you go near them. They remind me of overzealous helicopter-parents — urging the goslings to eat grass and grow up asap. Notice how fast the kids grow. Below are a few snaps.
