It may be dank, damp and drizzly, but a sure sign that a rite of spring has taken hold came in the form of a family of Canada geese dilly dallying around their Schwenker’s Pond home in Fair Haven today.

Fair Havenite Sandi Richards von Pier spotted the parents and four babies taking a little trek around the Schwenker’s Pond area neighborhood.

She says they made their way up the hill from the pond, and onto Chestnut Street and into and around the neighborhood and back.

So, she greeted them and captured the family walk in a picture.

Well, the fertility that symbolizes the season is evident right here, even though there have always been complaints about the overpopulation and mess Canada geese leave behind.

Isn’t that just ducky? OK, it’s goosey.
