They’re getting big, these duckers!
The four miracle goslings of Prospect Park — the first Canada Geese born since federal authorities slaughtered 300 waterfowl in the name of aviation security — are doing what comes naturally, if this picture is any indication.
Our shutterbug Tom Callan — who could teach those boys at National Geographic a lesson or two — captured this little guy (gal?) chowing down on some prime meat on Wednesday morning.
The Mutual of Omaha moment really showed off how quickly these babies are growing — and again highlighted one of the best nativity stories since Arnold Schwarzenegger’s love child.
No goslings were supposed to be born this season, thanks to efforts to prevent another massacre by humanely treating eggs so that they would not develop into geese.
Well, you know what happened: Nature finds a way!
Historic occurrances like the goslings’ live birth present historic opportunities — so the goose-loving editorial board of The Brooklyn Paper is putting together that never-tired canard of community newspapers: a naming contest.
