Birds are amazing creatures


By Will Maines

BIRDS ARE amazing creatures.

Take your pick; beginning with Big Bird, who for the past 40 years — give or take a couple — has been capturing the hearts of kids all over the world.

You might next consider some of the exotics like macaws, parrots, flamingos and others which are forever viewed with amazement by people visiting zoos.

We in America have a love affair with our national bird, the bald eagle, while we stand in awe of endangered birds like the whooping crane and are entranced, at least in the North Woods, by the antics and songs of the common loon.
