Bangor, ME -- Mrs. Ann Rubble, 75, has kept track of birds nesting in her back yard for the past 50 years. She recently bought a book of all the birds she might ever encounter in her back yard. "It even has birds from Greenland."
The wrens and robins and sparrows had all settled in when she took the bird book out to her back yard. Comparing it to her old Reader's Digest bird book, that has some really old fashioned names from 1960, she was still shocked. "It does not describe the nest and number of eggs! What if a storm blew a pair of Atlantic Puffins in my yard and decided to nest here?" She decided to return the defective book to Barnes and Noble.
