Baby Birdorable: Greylag Goose

July 3rd, 2012 in Baby Birds, Geese No comments

If you think our Birdorable birds are cute as adults, what about when they are babies? Below are some baby photos (shared via Flickr Creative Commons) of the Greylag Goose. Greylag Geese typically mate for life. Nesting occurs in loose colonies with cup nests built on or near water. Typical clutch size ranges from 4 to 6 eggs; incubation takes just about four weeks. Chicks fledge about five weeks after hatching; young birds remain with their parents through the spring migration following their hatching.
