I love this post by Mary of “Walking My Path” titled “Goose Music”. It goes wonderfully with my today’s post on Goose Symbolism. Mary expounds so beautifully about these amazing beings. I hope you enjoy her share as much as I did. Thank you Mary for sharing it with me and for sharing your love of Earth and all of her magnificent children. ❤
Yay! The geese are back! There are two pair so far. We used to have the same 11 every year. Five pair and one lone goose. They came seven years in a row. They tried rearing young each year, but there has been less and less water, so they were successful only one year. Each year we see babies, and are hopeful.
Last year we watched the mama on the nest, and the male keeping vigilant watch – just far enough from the hidden nest to draw attention away.
The babies are yellow when they hatch. Right away, the parents bring them to the meadow by the creek.
It seems like the day they come out is the same day the yellow dandelions start to bloom. Perfect camouflage. After a couple of weeks, they turn a fluffy gray, just at the same time the dandelions grow their fluffy gray seed heads.
