"In this rare photograph," says a professor from the university, "an Ozone Warbler has been discovered using camoflauge to avoid detection.
"Because these green nests blend into the foilage, we suspect that there are actually many more Ozone Warblers nesting than previously believed.
"There could, in fact," he concluded, "be an Ozone Warbler in every tree."

A lot of foolish people think they're hang gliding with parachutes - but nobody ever thinks they're parachuting with hang gliders.

"In this rare footage, recovered from a tiny camera attached to an Ozone Warbler," says a professor from the university, "we see the creature in the act of nesting at the beach.
Apparently unable to find a suitable tree, it decides to nest on a high street lamp where we assume it will find many bugs to eat, attracted to the light during the night. This survival trait, a learned behavior, indicates that the creatures may not be quite as stupid as previously believed."

Well damn! Nobody checked his P rating before launch. I'm sure that would have prevented the accident. :srofl:

Taxidermists reach the nest of an Ozone Warbler high in a pine tree.
"Dang," says the novice taxidermist. "The creature got away!"
He starts to pull the nest out of the tree.
"This thing sure is heavy..." he complains.

Image
Suddenly, an Ozone Warbler bursts from the nest - but the novice grabs it.
"Hey, everybody!" he yells. "Lookit what I found! I can't wait to pluck it and stuff it!"
Unfortunately, no egg was found.

Three novice taxidermists soak the Ozone Warbler they have found.
"Are you sure we're supposed to soak it like this?" one asks.
"Yeah, I think so," says another. "We soak it for about half an hour, then we pluck it and stuff it."
"I never heard them say we gotta soak it first!" protests the third.
Unfortunately, no egg was found.

After a week, the bugs on the quad have dramatacally decreased.
    "In the old days, we used to take them down right away," says a city worker. "But now we're hoping to get one on every light pole. We'll be bug free!"
    Unfortunately, no egg was found.

High in a lonely forest, an Ozone Warbler calls hopefully.
"Hallop! Hallop!" Soon a mate will come.
Then perhaps, an egg!
Or not.

"In this rare photograph, two Ozone Warblers are caught in the act of mating in their nest," said a professor from the university.
"Although rare, this activity has been observed before. Unfortunately, no egg was found."

After searching for hours for an Ozone Warbler reportedly nesting in the area, a novice taxidermist shouts:
    "Look! I think I found the egg!"
    "Gimme dat!" orders the master taxidermist.
    "The insides, anyway..." the novice adds, handing him the gooey mess.
    "Oh, yuck!" exclaims the master. "You stupid idiot! That's bird poo!"
