The kids are back

I live on 28 acres. We have trees and ponds and wildlife, including coyotes, foxes, raccoons, opossums, woodchucks, deer, etc. They wander around the periphery of our home with abandon, just as these three Canada goslings. One day, their mother left them in the pond to the west of the house and flew away. They couldn't fly, so they did the next best thing. They bolted out of the pond and followed her, they came charging through the yard, past our bedroom windows, down our driveway and crossed over to the property next to us, peeping frantically all the while. My husband said, "Should we go after them?" and I asked, "And do what with them?" An hour later I looked toward the pond. There were the three young geese with their mother. The mood around here lightened considerably, as we'd watched these youngsters for weeks.
