We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.
Until I saw it I had no idea they migrated at night. As a EMS pilot I found it most unnerving to see flocks of geese tooling along at 1500 ft.
I only was able to see them over brightly lit cities. A crew from Little Rock (yeah, Arkansas, where they flood the rice fields to invite the migrating birds) caught one in the wind screen but was able to safely land.
