There’s a proposal on the table to convert all the local water birds to digital. Proponents say it will increase beauty in their flight patterns and cut down on their energy consumption by 27%.

This reminds me of the big currency switch about a decade ago, when they replaced George Washington on the One Dollar Bill with an All-in-One Fax, Copier, Scanner Printer.

If this goes through, I think I’ll capture one of the analog pelicans and keep it in a jar. Raise it as a step brother.
