welcome, birds

Mellowcat found out today that somebody left $1.3 in his will to Redwood City, with the money designated only for bird baths and feeders in City parks.  Great news for local birds, and the many other feathered friends who are just passing through.  Two of the locations chosen for the bird baths are close to Mellowcat’s house, which is nice.  The city is having trouble coming up with ways to spend this much money on bird baths and feeders – I suppose they haven’t priced them at Smith and Hawken yet.  A lesson herein, regarding keeping your will up to date.  Probably when this fellow designated this in his will (the 1970’s), the value of his estate would have been more in line with the expected cost of bird feeders for city parks.
