But, more recently, I read in the preface to Grunt: The Curious Science of Humans at War by Mary Roach the method by which the military tests aircraft against what is called birdstrikes: by shooting chickens out of a sixty-foot cannon. And I thought, huh, there must be something to this wildlife thing.
So, I went back to the PDX website and started reading about wildlife management. And reading, and reading. It's interesting stuff.
And, I'll tell you about it someday. I'll lose internet later today so I just wanted to let you know what I've been up to: page 28 of 137 of Portland International Airport's 2009 Update Wildlife Hazard Management Plan, Port of Portland Mitigation Sites, Portland International Airport 2009 Landscaping Standards, PDX Raptors . . . .
