Spring has come to the pond at the end of Cattail Lane. Among the cattails near the pond's edge, Canada Goose sits on a nest atop a muskrat house. She made the nest from cattails and lined it with soft down from her breast. Weeks after the eggs were laid, five fluffy goslings finally hatch. Canada Goose and her mate have a lot to teach their young--how to swim, how to find food, and how not to get lost! But when a gull circles overhead, will the goslings know how to say safe?About the Author:
