Birds of a feather flock together

Now while I don’t pretend to totally understand that little saying, it reminds me that I am just about done with the book Feathers by Thor Hanson and have learned a great deal about our feathered friends.

So with that said, here are two articles about our feathered friends, one happy and one sad. First the good news.

Over at my local paper, the St. Louis Post-Dispatch we have this happy story entitled “Purlple Martins Are Finding Homes Here” by Margaret  Gillerman. Yea!

Unfortunately we also have this sad story of  “A City of Glass Towers, and a Hazard of Migratory Birds” by Lisa Foderaro  especially as migration season starts to pick up.

Take care my feather friends!
