Many thanks for all of the wonderful posts and pictures of the
Commmon Pochard. For those of us trapped at work or at too far a
distance, it's thrilling to be able to share in the excitement, at
least vicariously. My brother, however, insists there's a new
ornithological term that applies, called "Ducking Responsibility:
skipping work to view a rare duck".
Hmmm, this sounds better and better.
