Smart geese

I drove into Andreas Parking lot. It was early so no one else was there.

There were a family of five geese, two adult and three goslings. They headed to the corner where the tennis court and the fence along the river meet. They appeared to be trapped. After a little squeezing, the goslings got under the river fence, but the adults could not fit. I stayed still and slowly the adults came back along the short end of the tennis court (toward me), around the corner, south along the long end and finally a right toward the river. In the meantime, the three goslings and gone south along the river side of the tennis court and met the parents at the corner. I was impressed that they solved the problem and that the goslings contributed by not staying still.
