"There are some who can live without wild things, and some who cannot. For us of the minority, the opportunity to see geese is more important than television, and the chance to find a pasque-flower is a right as inalienable as free speech." Aldo Leopold
We made the acquaintance of this lovely young family early today on the beach near the edge of the Salish Sea. Geese are generally unpleasant creatures but despite their unfortunate temperaments they are still rather handsome and their goslings are perfectly adorable. It is highly advisable to respect their boundaries which should be the rule with all families.
