Baby Goslings

This is Ugly sitting on her nest. She had 4 babies at the time. She now has 6. Her daughter from two years ago is now sitting on a second nest next to her. They are downright nasty in their protection of the eggs and babies. They are turning out to be very good mothers. Fillip, the spitting llama is on the side of the fence and finds it very entertaining.
The other geese are keeping watch on the far side of the fence.You always know that a gosling is hatching, because all of the females are on the inside until it is done.

It is spring here and the palo verdes are in full bloom. So are my allergies!
