Debunk

Well there you go... I'll swear on a stack of Bibles or any Holy Books that that is an untouched photo; I took it myself. That's proof positive that werewolves exist, or at least their shadows do..

One small problem -- that pic is nothing more than a freak happenstance -- a bunch of plastic bags that happened to block light in a whimsical fashion. And that's part of the problem with the world today -- from bird identification to UFOligists to 'climate change experts' -- sometimes we take snippets of time and space and proclaim universal truth.

Here's a great exchange from the old 'Honeymooners' show:

Norton to Ralph: "I saw a Yellow-Bellied Sapsucker."

Ralph: "And HOW do you know that?"

Norton: "Cuz it had a yellow belly, and it was suckin' sap..."

Bunk!!! (And no Al Gore, the North Pole is holding its own...) Just look at what passes for 'science' today: http://www.history.com/videos/monsterquest-giant-bird-footage#thunderbird-explained...

I don't know... This is one of the benies of backyard birding -- we don't have to debunk or worry about 'un-think' -- we just asterisk. "Mrs. CCA thought she saw a merganser, but it could have been a hummingbird..."

By those simple feeders...
