This means we should stop calling people "bird brains"!!! LOLjebmke wrote: ↑Fri Jun 17, 2022 1:24 pmGreat book. I think they mentioned that Chickadees can remember where they hid hundreds/thousands of seeds for up to six months. Yet I can't even remember why I went into the kitchen.TomatoTomahto wrote: ↑Fri Jun 17, 2022 12:53 pmTheir industry and the “genius” of instinct is stunning.
I recommend The Genius of Birds by Jennifer Ackerman.
In other matters, checked on the Bluebirds in back. Chicks are still there but quite large; they have to be about ready to fledge. Evicted House Sparrows from the front box today. Many Catbirds around the yard again. I think they must have fledged recently.
The barn swallows are busy nesting on my front porch. Haven't seen the little heads yet.
