I didn’t have my kids this weekend so on Monday I sat and watched a movie entitled appropriately enough, Memorial Day. The main character, Bud (a WWII veteran) loved birds, especially the sounds they made. Anyway, it reminded me of an article I read recently entitled “When Birds Squawk, Other Species Seem to Listen” by Christopher Solomon at the New York Times.
The article talks about how birds and even other animals communicate between themselves. Now I can’t remember at the end what it was Bud said about maybe why he loved birds so much, but maybe it had to do with songs. Anyway, If I find out, I’ll let you know. Both the movie and article are well worth the time.
