Since I’m off grid a bit and since we’ve spoken about a ton of fun/unusual stuff over the years – today and tomorrow will feature a random smattering of past topics I encountered on searches.

A Murmuration of Starlings or a Serious Case of Ornithophilia?

Thank you all for indulging in my recent obsession of birds, yesterday’s will be tough to beat but today we’ll focus on an unusual situation in Petworth. In the building above the YES! Organic Market on Georgia Ave – apparently there are either a ton of birds or someone who’s playing a really loud recording of a ton of birds. A reader captures the scene a bit (though I’m told the video doesn’t do justice to how loud these birds sound):

“This was filmed on Taylor St, a block off of Georgia. My neighbor said she’s emailed the management company for the building that Yes is in, but hasn’t received a response.

What on earth is up with the loud recording of bird noises on Georgia by Yes? This has been going on for days, only at night.”
