More Dummy Mummy

gosling with mirror and mum
C'mon, mom!
My previous post was about my using decoys and mirrors when raising Canada geese goslings. This method is particularly useful in the prevention of imprinting when I have a single gosling. I wanted to share these photos of a gosling with her dummy mummy and mirror ‘sibling’. The second photo is the fully fledged bird returning to visit ‘mum’ and to try to convince her to fly away eith her.
