Birds and Snow

The pigeons simply shouted at the snow to make it go away but that didn't work. 
Up at the ponds, the ducks were very cold, walking on ice. 
Their backs were covered in snow: water off a duck's back, snow on a duck's back. 
The Egyptian geese at the other pond chose the moment to mate, and Mr and Mrs White Goose decided to bully two poor ducks who had taken refuge on a thin earthen ledge against the back wall, pecking at them and chasing them along the ledge just for 'fun'.
End of snow news broadcast!
