[tn-bird] Re: chimney swifts and fossil fuel costs


Have you ever read Audubon's description of the giant hollow sycamore that
thousands of swifts swirled and funneled into for evening shelter and took
a full half hour to empty the next dawn? It is in Donald Peatty's Natural
History of Eastern Trees...

Jeff Wilson makes a good point, as a friend of mine pointed out about
people driving around burning fuel to pick up aluminum  cans to
recycle...sometimes we incur costs that outweigh the benefits...however,
the farmers 'market in my town is only a couple of blocks from my usual
route to and from work..
