Ducks and Geese

February 08, 2013  •  Leave a Comment

A constant presence in the Central Park Reservoir (renamed the Jackie Kennedy Onassis Reservoir) are ducks and geese. They swim with abandon, orange webs flicking and paddling, they snooze uninhibitedly on ice in the winter and on rocky shelfs in warmer weather, and they preen shamelessly, smoothing out feathers and shaking their tails. Often they swim in pairs - sometimes the male, other times the female leads. True gender equality. They have gatherings, massive ones, with no apparent leader and wanderings here and about. These may be equivalencies to town hall meetings, assemblages to discuss key issues such as immigration policies on the likelihood of high walls keeping them out.P2060038 P2060014
