A LITTLE BIRD SAID…

I feel compelled to bring to your attention one area in which I feel your quality paper is sadly deficient, and that is in coverage of the pied-billed grebe. This lovely water bird can be seen in Central Park on any Chol Hamoed, and just to hear its bleating whoops and gulping kuk-kuk-kuk sounds would provide your readers with a striking lesson in niflaos haBorei. May I suggest that you devote a long-overdue feature to this star fowl — perhaps even a cover story — some time before the next Yom Tov? If you would but remedy this omission, your paper would be perfect.
