Maybe Canadians Aren't So Bad After All
Because I live between two area ponds, Canadian geese frequently fly overhead. Their frantic honking, whispering wings and elegant flight formations never fail to impress me. When grounded, the year-round residents seem like horribly mutated pigeons. Avoiding their vile waste in area parks can be a challenge. And aggressive ganders pose a genuine threat to unsuspecting toddlers. Still, I've overcome my instinct to reach for a shotgun as I hear them approach.
