Re: birds and other critters


    They do say there is one born every 15 minutes (actually I think it was
P.T. Barnum that said that) and they are a stubborn lot to. They don't give
anything up easily. Just read about that in one of my environmental Psych.
texts. People still cling to the full moon concept i.e.. more murders,
babies born etc. It's been disproved, but the idea still stays.
