Bode mania

Just some miscellaneous links today as I finish up packing the van for the drive east:

Even USA Today has jumped on the Bode bandwagon, running a cover story on him today. There's also a really cool photo gallery of him on their website.

According to the ornithologist quoted in a "Week In Review" article in Sunday's New York Times, an estimated one billion birds fly into buildings each year in the United States alone. My roommate, Josh, calculated that works out to 3.1 collisions per second. That sounds feasible enough to me, but Josh was skeptical, saying he has rarely seen it happen.
