Swimming Lessons: Branta Canadensis

Hey, Blog-Buddies!

Buster, logging in, with a brief report on my second-favorite subject: SWIMMING!

My first-favorite subject, as you know with tedious certainty, is chasing my yellow Wilson-Ball around the back-yard until it looks like the aftermath of the Bikini Atoll tests.

Anyway--I was honored to observe a first-class piece of tutelage in the fine art of aquatic propulsion this afternoon. In fact, it was a masterpiece! Observe:

This was followed by "Part II:
Synchronized Swimming!"

It took me days to master the dog-paddle. These little guys, aged precisely one week, learn fast! Well almost as fast as...THE MASTER:

Little Toot, a.k.a. Ms. Bailey Blue, Mistress of the Seas!

I can't wait to head north and go to the Pond!

Your faithful correspondent,

You could learn a lot from those duckies! We don't know if any of us know how to swim since we've never been to any water deeper than a mud puddle!

We don't know how to swim yet... but maybe we'll learn someday. In the meantime, we're hoping we get to see the baby geese on our pond, but based on the coyote sounds we've been hearing at night...we may not. That makes us sad. But Mom says, "That's nature." We'll just have to come and look at your videos over and over!
