seem to be speaking together
in different languages.

          Yes, by a man who had the romantic idea of importing all the birds mentioned by Shakespeare. Not such a good idea afterall. I think it is the starlings that have created a big problem.

    I have the opposite problem. Almost everything that lives in the woods — other than crows, cardinals, and cowbirds — is striped, freckled, dappled, or spotted. All the solid color birds seem to live near the ocean or in the wetlands. But woodland birds — to blend in with the surrounding scenery? — seems to be multi-colored and rather amusingly motley.
