Living on the Guadalupe River in San Jose, California, is always interesting. A few days ago, I saw more than a dozen of our noisy local Canada geese walking under the bridge intermingled with a smaller flock of Mallard ducks. The birds had to open their great wings to balance as they climbed up the bank to nibble on dry weeds. This is the same bridge that four months ago spanned a river full bank-to-bank with a rushing brown flood waters. The bank that the geese climbed up was far under water last Spring.
