Do you remember the old Western movies, when the bad guy came to town and all the townspeople huddled in corners, gossiping about what he might do next?
Turns out that geese, heron, and egrets are just like people. The bad guy, the winged Jack Palance, gives a leisurely swing through town and the surface of the water clears like magic.
The mothers call their children close.
"Oh, no! I can't look!" Or maybe I can't not look?
And after it's all over, the townspeople have a good natter.
Proving the the whole bad guy thing is for the birds!
