Fruitful Canada Geese

We've got Canada Geese in these parts.  In fact, maybe they should start calling 'em Boise Geese... how many more could Canada have than us?

From the Wikipedia article: "During the second year of their lives, Canada geese find a mate. They are monogamous, and most couples stay together all of their lives. If one dies, the other may find a new mate. The female lays from 2–9 eggs with an average of five..."

On Friday I was headed home from the office and saw a BIG goose family... snapped a photo.

Count 'em.  I believe there are 33 babies in this bunch!  I s'pose it might be some sort of Goose Daycare or Goose Preschool... or perhaps Goose Fertility Experiments!
