gaggles of geese
As we got closer, it seemed as though they were reluctant to fly, but waddled away from the river instead.
It wasn’t until a pair of bald eagles flew by that the geese took to the air.
It never ceases to amaze me how they can fly so close together without major collisions and falling out of the air.
One swallow does not make a summer, but one skein of geese, cleaving the murk of a March thaw, is the spring.
