    I know thats a reference but I cant put my finger on it hes actually my grandmas cat and to my knowledge his name is Kitty!

    Jack in the box, is the connection I was trying to make to your Cat In the box.

    This kind of Jack in the box, not the fast food one.

  2. Please be sure to apologize to your darling bride for me @Charlie Spencer. I only mentioned her to make a silly connection to the name in the song. I wasn't suggesting that her phone number would be found written on the wall like it is in the song, even if you are the kind of guy that would call those kinds of numbers. Please be sure that your darling bride knows that I meant no disrespect to her.

    I guess it's time to clue in those too young to be familiar with the number.

    I can't find it now but I had read that some areas had changed the automated message from "this number is not in service" to something along the lines of "Jenny doesn't live here." And yes, I tried to call the number to see which recording was played for me but the number was not in service so I'll never know if Jenny lives there or not. 仄潑儭

    Preliminary DNA analysis found that 2 of 15 broods in central British Columbia contained "dumped eggs." Odd egg-laying sequences and clutches with 1315 eggs are likely the result of parasitism on the study area (KLW).

    I can't help but wonder if any of the "dumped eggs" might actually be stolen eggs. Just like hawks have been known on rare occasions to raise chick's they've stolen from other nests, I wonder if other birds might sometimes steal eggs to increase the brood size of their own nests. Just thinking out loud about something I know nothing about.

    LMAO...and just what kind of a response can those bold enough to call expect?....*seriously considers calling just to satisfy my curiosity if your darling bride ever answers the phone*

    Just out of curiosity @Charlie Spencer, does your darling bride go by the name Jenny? Just silly curiosity, no need to reveal anymore personal information than you already have.

    Does anyone have tips on how to better learn bird vocalizations?

    Repetitive observation. I think it'd be a lot like learning to identify birds visually, or like learning to identify musicians by the song playing on the radio. Repetitive exposure over time helps, but you need the ear for it. MJ is great at IDing birds by sound but not so great with visual IDs, whereas I am better with visual IDs but simply can't keep the auditory clues straight in my head. I think my short answer to your question would be, patiently.
