A Magical World of Oneness
Canada geese are about the most illustrious of the Anatidae (better known as the duck) family that includes, in addition to dozens of unique species of ducks (from mallards to mergansers—not a Donald or Daffy among them), several styles of geese and a couple of generously proportioned swans for good measure.
The eminent Canadian honkers' precisely planned formations are certainly awe-inspiring, but anyone who has beheld the deafening anarchy of a flock of snow geese taking off en-masse for their bi-annual, continent-long migration would think them legendary in their own right.
