hmmm... the truth about what happened to Ivory-bills? :

http://www.office-humour.co.uk/cartoons/6055/

otherwise, things are looking up this weekend.... Wolfowitz is OUT!, Gonzalez is hanging by a gossamer thread, George Tenet's book tops the NY Times bestseller list, and President Cheney is royally pissed off by it all (even while he chortles at the ten Republican wannabees wasting their time/breath vying for the position he intends on holding onto himself). And "W" remains forever clueless...

And on a lighter note, grabbed off the Web for anyone interested, an old article on feral Peach-faced Lovebirds in Arizona here. I probably shouldn't, but I confess I love stories about wild psitticine populations in the U.S. We usually hear about feral Monk Parakeets or other conures, but this is the first I'd noticed of Peach-faced Lovebirds, one of my favorite species.

Love of invasive species and space aliens further confirms your bad judgement.
 
indubitably... but at least the accidental release of a few psitticines who then manage to find themselves and succeed in an unlikely environment, is further evidence of the adaptability/survivability of individuals, and in turn, species.
