Friday afternoon fuzzy moment: Baby Canada geese

April 9, 2010 at 3:56 pm | In West Seattle news, Wildlife | 8 Comments

Last year, Alki photographer David Hutchinson shared several progress reports on Canada geese along Harbor Avenue SW, birth to maturity. This year, the photo you see above just arrived, under the heading “First Gosling Photo of 2010.” David explains:

The Canada Goose gosling season has begun on schedule along Harbor Avenue. This family of six goslings was seen getting acclimated to their new surroundings. Hopefully everyone will be tolerant of their presence over the next 2 ½ months as they roam the shoreline of Elliott Bay from Don Armeni south to Salty’s.


  1. Sweet babies!

  2. Great photo, David! Hope they were drinking out of a clean puddle rather than one by the road? I’ll have to go over there and see if I can find them. Thanks for sharing!

  5. These are nothing more than rats with wings that poop everywhere.

  6. I figure sweet n sour goose breast tastes better than rat. Just my opinion, but it’s true.
