Thirteen a Lucky Number?

This is a normal sight here at Lakewood...every spring.

Babies running here and there.

They are so cute in their quest for food!

This spring is a little more interesting and fun with lots of babies.

And I mean lots! Multiple families. Multiple babies.

We have one family with 13 babies...13? Geese only lay 6 to 8 eggs.
How did they end up with 13?

And how do they manage with that many running under foot?

So is 13 a lucky number?!? Apparently not! This same family now has 15 babies. Yep...15!

How can that happen? Are they fostering? Have they adopted?
Naw...I think they have started a daycare! Times are tough, ya know!

Oh I am envious! Right in your own backyard! I only see them when out and about....risking life and limb pulling u-turns and other silly behavior.

Amazing how animals take in one anothers kids easier than humans...many life lessons to learn from our animals.

Such precious photos! Yours is the second post I've seen today of geese with upwards of 15 babies. The other was in southern Indiana, which you can see at the link below.

We are traveling thru Texas at the moment and we are seeing tons of baby goats, baby deer, baby rabbits, etc.

Isn't nature the best!!!

That is a cute little little baby duck post. At least since they are in your yard, you an watch how they grow. It is amazing how birds or animals work so well with nature.
