Snap-shot in the Park

500mm Snap(1)A09A0129

I think they are the Canadian Geese but I’m not sure as the

color is dark grey — or are they juvenile ?

And they are the Coots.  Unlike ducklings,  Coot’s chick looks rather odd.

Now I realized, Coot’s chicks got full-size foot !    But no web — how

those chicks can swim ?   (Photo right )


I think, most of the bird’s chicks are not cute or I rather say, they are ugly.

When I was young, I rose a pigeon chick whose mother didn’t return few

days after egg hatched.  New born chick was almost naked with few yellow hair still,

the beak was quite big, and eat a lot. —– I had to feed the chick mouth-feed while

chowing the grain myself.   When chick got stomach-full, the eaten grain or maze

were visible under the thin skin.   So, chick walks with full-up chest while shaking ass.  

= looks awful — not mention utterly noisy begging call, and shit everywhere.   😦   🙂

Still, this chick became a fully grown-up pigeon though, she (he ?) was completely 

imprinted me as the kind, and couldn’t become a member of pigeon society.    So, 

even after became independent, she stayed under the roof many many years. 

—– I don’t know whether I did good things to her or not = wasn’t that better, leave

her fate to the nature and let the chick dies ?    Good but heavy question.

You may say, why Dandelion here ? —– Well, all the photos here were taken

by 500 mm Mirror lens.    And my mirror lens works well as a Macro lens too.

    I think you did a good thing, even if she (he) thought you were the father. By the way, certainly canda goose above…

      Thank you Bente.
      The pigeon chick must be thinking I’m Mother. 😀
