Duck Duck Goose

Look at these brand-new little goslings! The Canada geese honk like bumper cars as they fly overhead toward the little pond in our neighborhood. They are vigilant parents. I've seen males valiantly holding off oncoming cars to protect their little family while crossing the street. For anyone who hasn't done so, I strongly recommend watching Winged Migration, the film will deepen your appreciation of the complexity of birds.

The ducks continue to demand our hommage. If there isn't any food left about for them, they quack loudly and wiggle their bums in annoyance. Particularly important to them is fresh water. When I bring them a bowl they promptly dump sand and bark dust into it. Then they rinse their little bills with vibrating back and forth motions. They are such characters!

If only we could all be as cute as Pam ;)

Is it only me, or could you just pull your hair out right about now? Pre-graduation stress sucks ;p Anyway, I have a few questions for you, so I'll probably be calling/e-mailing you later!
