I love Canada Geese. I very much prefer them over swans. In my perfectly honest opinion, I think that swans look like dinosaurs. Their necks are too long. Canada Geese are so much more practical looking.
And they are smart. Every day, we see scores of these beautiful birds overhead flying south for the winter. Some of them will go as far as Alabama. They will then realize just how nice year round warm weather is. They will crash the Montgomery zoo and stay forever. I've seen it happen.
So if a goose with a brain that is smaller than a bean knows to go south in the winter, can someone please tell me why we are currently north of Minneapolis and heading for North Dakota?

Not that I'm complaining or anything.


  1. I for one prefer swans. Long necks are considered elegant. Besides, have you ever seen a swan attack someone? No. That's what geese do. They hate people. And are very scary when they are chasing you.

  2. Yes. Swans attack quite frequently, and they also chase people. The only difference between a swan attacking and a goose attacking is that the swan is about three times bigger.

  3. Yeah, I guess I'll be one of those snowbirds who makes its way down south soon. I guess. I don't know. It's cold up north, eh?

  4. Yeah, Christina... swans attack... there's an entire section of youtube that proves that. :P
