Sunday's Felixstowe Breakfast Briefing

Sunday Thought

Now is the time for Canadian geese goslings, like those at the Strand, begin pecking at small objects, and spend most of their time sleeping and feeding. They remain with their parents constantly, though sometimes "gang broods" form. These can include at least two broods, and sometimes five or more, that travel, feed, and loaf together, accompanied by at least one adult. The young often remain with their parents for their entire first year, especially in the larger subspecies. As summer wanes birds become more social; they may gather in large numbers at food sources; where food is limited and patchy, may compete with displays and fights.

Joke of the day:

Why do geese fly south for the winter?

Because it's too far to walk.

Sunday reflection:

[I]The Lord is my shepherd; therefore can I lack nothing.

Surely goodness and loving mercy shall follow me all the days of my life,

and I will dwell in the house of the Lord for ever.[I]

Psalm 23. 1,6
