The highlight of my week happened last Wednesday. I held a brand new baby gosling.
It was just a few seconds, but it was pretty special.
The gosling was outside at my work. His Mom was in the flowerbed above, but he couldn’t make the leap up the ledge. She just stood in the flowerbed and kept calling him, and he kept valiantly trying to leap more than 6 times his own height.
After observing–and (who am I kidding) talking to them–for a few minutes, I decided I would see if Mama would let me touch the baby. I walked over to the ledge, kept a close eye on Mama and made a quick grab. I set baby in the flowerbed, and he and Mama trotted up the hill.
No geese or geese-crazy women were harmed.
Although my geese craziness has reached a new level. I think coop construction just moved up the priority list. I need some birds back in my life.
What was the highlight of your week (or weekend)? Do you have any goslings in your neighbourhood?
