Tiny but powerful, wow, those Buffleheads know how to stay under. I need to learn how they do it if I’m going to keep watching such as the MSNBC Democratic Debate. Questions, Insults And Gaffes From Sanders & Clinton

I watch for the Bufflehead (B) to resurface

while I kick a rock in frustration over the Clinton/Sanders debate’s bloviations.

The B stay under for up to 25 seconds.

Its diving tactic COULD provide me a metaphor during debates:

Compress plumage to squeeze out air,

give a slight forward leap & plunge down with zest,

holding wings tight to body & propel with just feet.

Then POP like a cork to the surface

while I watch.
