Good shot but I don't think they like you watching them swim.

Nice shot of mother goose and gosling.

They look identical to our endemic Hawaiian Nene goose which is derived from the Canada Goose.

The furrowed markings on the neck as well as the coloration I believe is unique to the Hawaiian Nene Goose. The Nature Conservatory in Slimbridge, England was instrumental in a recovery program to rescue the Nene from the brink of extinction (30 birds in 1952).

Interesting bird. Mom doesn't look particularly happy about your presence.
