Goslings Jump from Osprey Platform 2020

While our osprey nest was built at a height osprey prefer, every year a Canada geese pair love to take over at the behest of their coming goslings. These goslings have to jump 35-feet in order to follow their parents to their first swim. But don't worry—these little goslings have flexible bones and lots of floof to make cushion their fall. Watch as this year's seven goslings take the plunge and then watch the nest live, we may have an osprey taking up residence again.
