Goslings Depart Unusually High Nest

Less than 24-hours after hatching, six goslings follow their parents to the ground on 5/8/2017. All survived the 35 foot plunge off an osprey platform on the Bay side of the Chesapeake Bay Foundation's Philip Merrill Environmental Center headquarters in Annapolis. A few minutes later, the family took their first plunge together in the waters of Black Walnut Creek.
