A few years back, I moved from California to Eastern PA (Macungie, specifically) for work.
As things dipped in to winter, I started to see geese flying through in V formation, just like in the Warner Bros. cartoons. Said cartoons taught me that the geese were flying south for the winter – ostensibly, Florida – where it was warm.
You could then imagine my perplexity when I saw the geese hanging around the fields in Eastern PA, where it was cold and getting colder.
This had me stumped for a while, until a co-worker informed me: “Umm…those are Canadian Geese. To them, this is south.”
Ya learn something knew every day, if you’re not careful…
