The San Francisco Bay area never ceases to surprise me. We had to make a trip to down Burlingame and we stopped at Bayfront Park in Millbrae. It’s a small park that sits adjacent to San Francisco International Airport (SFO). It made for some great plane AND bird watching.
Last week, Lastech and I went off to watch a sunrise. He took me to the area where he took his last group of pics. It’s called Shoreline at Mountain View. It is home to a lot of birds. It’s full of birds during the migration season. We plan to go back to take advantage of it.
One of our favorite places in San Francisco is Golden Gate Park. We go there as often as we can. This year, we got there in time to see the offspring of the Canadian Geese that live around Stow Lake. Once we saw the first batch of goslings, we made a point of going back more often.
This was the first batch that we saw. There were 8 goslings in total. I shall refer to them as No. 1. 🙂
The next week, we went back. We not only saw group No. 1, but we saw a new group, No. 2. They were quite small and still bright yellow. There were four of them.
Group No. 1 had already grown a bit. All 8 were still there.
A week or so later, we drove by again. This time, I saw a creche and I hopped out of the car to count geese and take pics. Group 2 was there. They had grown a lot. I thought the others were group 1, but there were 9 goslings. It turns out that it was a 3rd group. In all, I saw 21 goslings that day as I found group 1 a short distance away. Groups 1 and 2 had grown so much that they were almost done molting.
Just a few days ago, we drove by one more time to check on geese. Holy Cow! They had grown up! This is what we found.
