    Default Urban birds are lazy

    Results of a study, just published by the British Trust for Ornithology’s Garden Ecology Team, have revealed that urban birds are lazy, arriving to feed at bird tables later in the morning than their rural counterparts. BTO researchers lay the blame for this behaviour on the waste heat that escapes from buildings and factories and warms up our urban areas by several degrees.

    'Urban birds are lazy'.

    There's got to be a smart answer to that one, but I cannot think of it right now....

    All it proves is that urban humans are lazy

    Birds getting up at dawn will just find empty birdtables, so there's no point in their going to them
