Two young Gosling (Canada Goose chicks) siblings are seen huddled next to each other, only a few weeks old. Their downy plumage starts out yellow, then as they age it turns grey. Finally their feathers start to come through, and as their wings develop they take on the appearance of adult birds. They will learn to fly and be fully grown by winter, and some retain their baby voices (squeaks) until the beginning of the next season.
