late april goslings with adults

During a stroll around the pond on our usual Nevada County, California walk yesterday, we came across a string of goslings across the path. There were four adults hanging around, including a goose of a different type than the Canada Geese that belonged to the youngsters. Was this adult “helping”?

I went back for my camera, and the birds had rearranged themselves. It was quite warm in the sun, and most of the youngsters were enjoying the shade provided by a wide adult body.

I was able to get a shot of the youngsters from far enough away not to disturb them too much. My, what big feet they have! They will certainly mature into big birds.
