Pushawalla Palms Oasis Trail Hike

Our hike today was a 5 mile loop located near Thousand Palms. The Pushawalla Palms Oasis Trail takes you to the ridge of an uplifted earthquake fault past stunning views of the Coachella Valley down to the Oasis. On this hike are my friends Jim Cavan, his son Greg and his wife Yvette, Patsy Mosley and of course, yours truly me. To view photos of this hike click on the following image.

Baby Goslings 9 Days Old

Baby Goslings Hatched Today!

Here's a video of seven baby goslings that were hatched this morning. The father (gander) is sitting on the nest keeping the babies warm, while Mother goose is out grocery shopping for her new family. She better hurry, as you can see in the above video some of the babies are eating feathers, they're so hungry!

Watch the above unedited video taken the very next day. I can't believe they already left their about fast learners. Found the babies swimming with their parents in the pond on Fairway #17 at Woodhaven Country Club in Palm Desert, CA.

Check out the precious footage below taken by Jeannie Ward. Here the babies are walking single file on the pony wall before they jumped and dove into the ground. Notice how the Mother goose and the dad are watching to make sure they are safe.
