Here is an interesting bit of research I came across while looking for some entomology literature.

I new they had great powers, but I would never have guessed their use in applied science.

I used to build nest-boxes for those, and other species, as a kid in Ireland. I just liked them - they're pretty..

I had to look them up. They are pretty. The other, well I like them too.

I have built nest boxes a time or two myself. Kind of nice to build it and see it get used.

Ah, a fellow-ornithologist.

Alas, they don't occur on this side of the Pond. I rather miss them, as well as a bunch of others of the smaller passerines.

I do a little bird watching now and again. I always wanted to see the European Robin among others.

I think it is much more attractive than the American Robin, though, I did a field study on the American Robin when I took ornithology as an undergrad. Like a lot of things, it is more interesting than it appears.

I was a naturalist in the Peter Scott tradition. Not that I knew it at the time.

And yes, the American Robin is a hell of a lot bigger, and less cute, than the European one.

Also, sorry, it doesn't look nearly as cute on a Christmas card.

I had to look up Peter Scott. I wasn't familiar with him.

I agree, the American Robin isn't as photogenic.

I haven't taken the opportunity to do as much bird watching as I used to. But I am trying to change that.

Makes you wonder how far we will advance in robotics in the next 20-30 years.

Thanks for sharing that is cool and I can really relate to that. On my right hand I lost my middle and ring finger below the first joint back in 2005. I would give anything to have them back. I will never get used to the nubs :-)
