Artist's Description

This is the parent of the goslings I posted recently. There were two parents initially (well, obviously it required two initially), but both were very active in raising the goslings last week, and now there’s only this one parent left. They’re very protective of their young. Canada Geese are monogamous and mate for life, so the other parent didn’t just take off – something must have happened recently. An accident or predation.

Despite recent event, this one remaining parent is very actively involved with the goslings and very protective. There are probably some bird experts that could tell if this is a male or female – I have no clue.

There was just enough light trickling through the hazy sky to get a decent photo, and I couldn’t resist the green background. Viewed at pixel-level, you can see trees and other park features reflected in the eye of the goose.
