“Owls are the only birds who can see the color blue.”
My newsreader shared this random tidbit on today’s feed. I might have more important things to ponder this Sunday morning, but I’m imagining all the world’s bird species sending a representative to the lab to be tested. Some journey long distances, but birds are built for that. Well, maybe not chickens. Chickens are birds, aren’t they?
The birds line up in a little birdie row, waiting their turn at the color chart. While the researchers are at it, they might as well discover which one(s) can see red and which one(s) can see yellow and which one(s) can see green. So it takes a while. I hope they provide species-appropriate snacks and maybe show a movie.
