Just in time for Mother's Day (Update)

The goslings finally hatched this morning. The pix above is a stock photo -- by the time I went in to get my camera and got back out, mama, papa, and the rest of the gaggle were gone. The parents apparently lead them to water soon after hatching -- we're hoping it wasn't straight down the seawall (splash!).

Update: I checked just before dark and mama goose is back in the nest with the goslings under her. Every now and then one pops out from one side and scurries and ducks under the other side. Ah, there no place like home.
