The Current Normal – Pandemic Baby Boom

No, it is not what you think folks, but a recent walk around our City park shows that a baby boom is currently underway. Moms and Pops proudly show off and protect their little ones as they show them the ropes.

These photos were taken June 28, 2020.

2 little Coot-ie Pies, getting even Coot-er
2 baby coots paddle off shore as Momma gives me whatfor, for being too close
I’m getting the stink eye from Momma
Coot little chicks
this family headed for a swim when a dog approached
with each pair of parents hatching 5-8 new chicks, fear not. Lakes and ponds around North America will again be filled with Canada Geese and their sidewalks filled with goose poop – there will be no shortage due to Covid-19 and…… do not even think about hoarding!
Mom and Pop keep bumping their beaks into the ground….what are they eating?….all I see is goose poop and it tastes like S- – –
so many new goslings
these little flowers taste pretty good
we may look stupid, but at least, we are not texting
….I thought you brought the diaper bag!
4 adults, 15 goslings
seeing double
and triple

    1. That is what they thought at first, but then they began wondering if all that time together could actually push couples apart. I know the maternity wards at Edmonton hospitals are seeing some pretty high numbers right now, but that more than likely relates to winter snuggles. Thanks for reading Bernie. Allan


    1. Sometimes I look at the chicks and they appear like human toddlers. When they get tired, they just sit down, when they are close to a sibling, they take a peck at them and so on. It has just got to be a trick to even walk with a body shaped like that. Thanks for reading and commenting. Hope all is well. Allan

  1. Aren’t they the cutest? I once read that little duckling have this special oil on its dawn and that’s what makes them waterfroof. If you ever touch them, the oil gets on your hands, lessoning the waterproofing of the duckling and causing it to become waterlogged when it returns to the water. Thanks for sharing and have a good day 😀 Aiva

    1. I love watching birds, especially baby water birds. They are so helpless at first, but soon get it all figured out. Humans could take a lesson from that. Thanks for reading and commenting Aiva. Allan
