Smallest Goosle Fledgling
Brighter eyed in large.
I've just back blipped another Goosle pic. for yesterday's entry.
I was back in London over the weekend, and it was lovely to see the Goosles! All three fledglings are still mooching around on Eagle Pond with Mr. and Mrs. (although they spend more of their time apart). This is the littlest one: she's very sweet and came over, cocked her head, and quacked softly a few times which was super-adorable...
I've uploaded some other photos to Flickr (right from here).
