    Well, I've heard of dogs and cats and even horses acting strange before an earthquake but yesterday it was our duck who was disturbed. We live in Oklahoma so earthquakes are pretty rare but we had one in the middle of the night last night that was a 4.7 which is pretty sizeable for these here parts. Then we knew why our duck, who normally doesn't like to go in his house even after dark, went in his house before dark last night and kept pecking at the geese to get them inside, too, without us even out there prodding at them. It was certainly odd behavior for our duck. Guess he's smarter than he looks.
