New Goose Family at Coventry Lake

This spring has sprung a new Canada goose family at Coventry Lake.  The babies were seen swimming across the lake in an orderly fashion.  The Canada Goose finds a mate and remains monogamous for its life.  They will often be seen swimming with one parent in front, followed by the offspring, with the other parent trailing.  Males give a lower pitched hwonk and females a higher pitched hrink.  The offspring of a goose are called goslings.  The baby geese pictured below are courtesy of Bing images.
