As I was sitting on the ol' Metro the other day, I noticed the advertising for the Marian Koshland Science Museum of the National Academy of Sciences. The poster says, "Could global warming drive...the orioles from Baltimore?" The nest doesn't look much like the nests of orioles, but I understand that is because they're trying to be cute. I mean, how many birds have nests shaped like question marks?
And I'm no avian expert. I'm no Bill Oddie.
But I just don't think the eggs that they've put into the nest look like Baltimore Oriole eggs, either. If the eggs are not oriole eggs, I find that sad. How much trouble would it have been to display real oriole eggs? I mean, the place is a museum, right? A center of learning and education?
If I'm wrong and they are oriole eggs, then, um. Nevermind.
