Such is the case with most animals huh?
I took this towards the end of last fall in the Fenway area. I thought they were baby ducks until their mother ran up to protect them. Personally I am not a fan of geese. Their numbers (at least in the city) are skyrocketing and all they do is crap all over the nicest parks! In the summer you can barely find a spot to lay down that isn't covered in goose shit. Hey at least they look like this for a short time.
Fun Fact:s about Geese:
The term goose applies to the female in particular while gander applies to the male in particular. Young birds before fledging are called goslings. The collective noun for group of geese on the ground is a gaggle; when in flight, they are called a skein, a team or a wedge; when flying close together, they are called a plump. - via Wikipedia
