Albatross glide through the sky
With acrobatic balance
But painfully their landings cite
Undeveloped talents

    I saw a video of them landing and as they touched down they would tumble about until they came to a complete stop. I never forgot the video. But I haven't been able to find it again.

    very nice ,,,,, yesterday as I was walking down the road,,, I was watching Canadian geese heading south I would guess,,, they were making large V shape then 2 smaller V's,,, though there was one somewhat behind. And all the while 1 of them was squawking. I assumed it was telling the other one to get in line ;}

    Got a charge out of this one my friend! Love the term "Goonie" birds... quite appropriate! Cheers
