JOURNALING: Canada Geese here in Ohio begin mating in early spring and usually lay from 3-9 eggs. Incubation lasts from 25-28 days. Goslings hatch with their eyes open and will leave the nest, following their parents, within 24 hours.  This new family (it was hard to see the babies but I think there are at least 7) was photographed near my home on May 2, 2021.
