There is a family of four goslings along with assorted adult geese at the pond where I take my daily walk. They are quite entertaining to watch, as the two parent Canada geese shepherd their little ones back and forth across the water, with an apparently female Chinese goose supervising activities.
Auntie seems to play a pivotal role. I discovered that Chinese geese are useful as “guards”. Here is an interesting article about a Chinese goose that adopted Canadian goslings at a rescue site. They appear to be adept in the same role as the sheep dog: herding.
