One of the many things I did not learn in high school..

And if I did not spend so much time gazing at waterbirds now, I might never have noticed the amazing fact that you can see right through one duck nostril and out the other to the world beyond. True. Look. The Hardheads at the pond have flat beaks and I don't think it's possible with them but it's possible with swans and Pacific Black Ducks. Try peering through next time you see them!


  1. Too funny! I have noticed that at times, you do have to get nice and close though.

  2. Are you suggesting nice and close is maybe too close :-)
