Birds Matter, You Better Believe It!

I remember being in my basic required Biology class one day in college as an undergraduate years ago. Most of us know how it goes when taking a required course—there were a lot of students present who were just there because they had to be,not because they wanted to be. So,they weren’t interested in the material being presented. In this instance I recall the professor, Dr. Gordon Alcorn a renowned West Coast ornithologist, talking about birds. Some of the students were getting restless and uninterested and the professor realized it. Then he stopped and said, “You aren’t interested in birds? Well if you aren’t, you should be. If suddenly today there were no birds in the world, tomorrow when you wake up everyone in the world would be knee deep in dead insects.” There was a resounding wow in the classroom as the students perked up with interest.
