This is post is seriously about waterfowl.
I saw the most beautiful birds yesterday in south Provo on my way to work. There's a canal running next to the Novell parking lot where I walk from the bus stop to my job every other day, and on Monday when it was cold and snowy there was a mist coming off of it and ducks were swimming around. Yesterday there were these curious animals that weren't ducks or geese, but looked like a mix between the two. They had rounder, dark gray, bodies and very long legs. Their necks and head were stark black and they had these short little white beaks. You couldn't see their eyes at all. Unlike ducks they were graceful, unlike geese they were darling. I don't care much for ducks or geese, but I loved these beautiful little birds. Ducks are stupid and geese are just mean, and I don't even understand why they have to chase people. The devil's birds, I call them.
