Funny little duck

All the lake birds have been pretty happy this week -- the weather has been gorgeous, which means that people are hanging around and feeding them. There was one little duck in the river near Bel-Air who was so absorbed with his enormous hunk of bread that he didn't realize he was being carried swiftly downstream by the current. Once he realized that he was rapidly leaving his friends behind, he started trying to swim upstream, but that attempt was doomed right from the start and he just ended up going downstream backwards. So he gathered all of his force and started flapping his wings and paddling his feet as furiously as he could, and he ended up running across the surface of the water all the way back to the other ducks.

(And they lived happily ever after.)

I love watching people feed the ducks and swans. Thanks for the story!
