Canada  Goose  7     Five goslings with  2 adults. I was  seriously worried 
yesterday when i found a number of large feathers srpead  around the shore 
of the pond they frequent. I thought predator got one of the  adults. Now, I 
have no idea  what happened, but they both look in good  shape and the male 
was as feisty as ever, as he charged my car.
