Respected ornithologist speaks to Milamor issue

Billy Joe Fudge writes:
Milamors are clearly, vaguely defined but to the best of my knowledge, they typically show up in front yards to show off for the passing public. Occasionally they can be seen around businesses and in back yards, around patios and the sort.

However, the huge impediment to Milamor viewing this time of year is "holiday yard art." Holiday yard art tends to occupy all the front yard habitat to the exclusion of Milamors. Holiday yard art tends to lay around all day and then puts on a somewhat inflated, gaudy display in the early evening hours. Milamors, although more terrene, seem to display whether night and day.

When I last checked Dr. Aaron's waiting room was a refuge for many displaced Milamors. On second thought, maybe they are not displaced but just choose that habitat to display for an appreciative viewing audience. -BILLY JOE FUDGE
