Presented to me as god's own truth by St. Byron Werner: make of it what

you will...

According to the Knight Ridder News Service, the inscription on the

metal bands used by the US Department of the Interior to tag migratory

birds has been changed. The bands used to bear the address of the

Washington Biological Survey, abbreviated as "Wash. Biol. Surv.";

until the agency received the following letter from an Arkansas camper:

 

Dear Sirs:

While camping last week I shot one of your birds. I think it

was a crow. I followed the cooking instructions on the leg tag and

I want to tell you it was horrible.

 

The bands are now marked "Fish & Wildlife Service."

 

-O.
