With little time to write at the moment we only briefly note the article in today’s Washington Post about song birds and the mega-stores with gardening centers. Another example of how misplaced is the derogatory comment, “bird brain.” You can read the article here.
We visited a mega store this time last year to see an entire family of Great Horned Owls. Two babies, both sound asleep when we were there. Mom and Dad watching over them. The only mystery is how they could stand the awful music playing on the store’s loudspeakers. It is better to see birds in the wild. Out there, no marketing expert is inflicting his idea of music on you.
