I celebrated Mother’s Day with a family of Geese. The goslings have arrived and have joined their parents on the Vancouver Seawall. The Seawall is separated into a pedestrian walkway and a bike lane. The Geese “gaggle” community believes that they have the right-of-way on both, but they seem to prefer the bikes lanes.
My thanks to the Geese family for allowing me to video their families. The video is named “A Family on the Move” but I think “The Geese Walk” is more fitting.
First come the scouts to survey the possible route. Then the family groups follow, with the chicks eating voraciously and one playing a frantic catchup. There are so many stories in this migration. Thank you for sharing this moment!
