Canada Geese with Goslings

This pair of Canada Geese, Branta canadensis, with 2 goslings was photographed at Thousand Acre Swamp in Penfield on May 9, 2009. Every spring for many years, Canada Geese have attempted to nest at Way Pond, but the goslings are almost always eaten by snapping turtles. In this case, the remaining goslings might have been big enough to survive. Thousand Acre Swamp is a preserve owned by the Nature Conservancy.
