PARODY COMPOSED: Giorgio Coniglio (registered pseudonym) and Dr. GH, May 2019. This blogpost is the first in a series of five collections of verses and photos about waterfowl, based primarily on Giorgio's waterfront outings in South Carolina and Ontario.
Today's verses. dealing primarily with the South Carolina lowcountry environment, have been published (a few remain under review) at OEDILF.com. The Omnificent English Dictionary In Limerick Form is an online humor dictionary that has accumulated over 100,000 carefully edited poems (Giorgio is proud to have contributed almost 300).

No photographic subjects were reimbursed for participating in this undertaking.
