    I wouldn't have believed it if I hadn't seen it myself. One of ours just flew off our dock and landed in the water. I started to run for the canoe to rescue it, but it floated just like a duck and calmly swam to shore, about 20 yards away.

    I wouldn't believe it, I lost one in my pool and that was in three or four inches of water, not sure why it didn't fly back out??? Glad yours can swim, must have been a sight for sure.
