The following is an e-mail I received from Chris Cunningham, owner of the Wife 
Saver restaurant chain, regarding his grassroots campaign to change the state 
bird of Georgia from the Brown Thrasher to the chicken. I had corrected him on 
the fact that their website says there are no thrashers in Georgia in the 
winter. By the way, for those of you who were wondering if he was serious about 
this whole campaign thing - he is, it's not a joke.
Good birding,

    Thanks for the heads up on the thrasher info.  We'll check out the websites 
and try to make everything correct.  We are serious about changing the bird and 
were trying to have a little fun with the site at the same time.  We are 
getting some statewide attention so who knows what might happen.  Constructive 
criticism is always welcome. Have a good weekend.  If you come to Augusta,  try 
our fried chicken at  any of 8 locations of Wife Saver. Voted  best in Augusta 
for 28 straight  years.
Thanks,  Chris
