We tripped the light fantastic with Speedy Ortiz, Courtney Barnett, Timeshares, The Cribs, Nai Harvest, Vessels and all of the rest.
"National Bird Day" is not only a good day to take time to appreciate
the native wild birds flying free outside our windows, it is also a
perfect time to reflect on how we treat the native birds of other
countries. While we have enacted laws to protect our native birds — such
as blue jays, cardinals, and crows — from commercial exploitation, we
fail to recognize the inconsistency in allowing the pet industry to
exploit the birds of other countries.
