Canada Goose Goslings

Canada goose goslings are precocial; that is, they are born covered with down, with their eyes open and soon after birth are able to swim and find their own food. Because they can digest grass and have a clear view of approaching predators, parents with young goslings are often found on mowed lawns next to water. The family sticks together for quite a while, with the goslings often remaining with their parents their entire first year.
