Help With School/Stupid Riddles

I hate riddles and for class I have to do four of them, I've figured 2 out, but I need help on these two:

RIDDLE ONE:
the part of the bird
that is not in the sky, which can swim in the ocean
and always stay dry

What is it?

RIDDLE TWO:
What has roots that nobody sees,
Is taller than trees,
Up, up it goes,
And yet it never grows?

Who or what is it?

If anyone could help, I'd appreciate it. YOUR NOT HELPING ME CHEAT, by the way. The teacher doesn't care how I find the answers, he just wants a report in business terms of how I found the answers, the usual college busywork.

Thanks in Advance for any help,
Steve

Cool, thanks for the response, and so quickly too. I appreciate it, I just have no head for riddles.

Also Acrob@t, thanks for the extra info, I can include that with my essay response.

I couldn't be arsed to think about them, so I just looked up the lines "which can swim in the ocean" and "what has roots that nobody sees" on AltaVista.

Never liked riddles much.
