Just a bit of fun: today on "Ask Me Another," an NPR pop-culture quiz show, I found out that the fine and fascinating actor Lily Taylor is an avid birder! During the course of her interview, she was asked if there were any unpopular birds. After defending some birds and categories of birds called out by the audience (vultures, Blue Jays, "pigeons"), she finally got around to naming House Sparrows and then explained why they are deservedly un-liked on this continent. Much to my relief, after sitting there and yelling, "HOUSE SPARROWS!!!!!" at my radio!!
