Spring in Minnesota can be a beautiful time. Except when you’re stepping in goose poop. Or getting hissed at by geese as you walk down the road. Or are trying to drive down the road and have to hold up a half mile of traffic while some geese decide that they want to take a leisurely stroll across a busy street.

Of course, Spring also brings adorable little baby geese, which despite their parent’s annoyance, are very, very cute.
