Imagine a flock of birds. Are they all likeminded or are they individual personalities? What about the chickens in your yard, your pet parrot, or the nesting robin in your tree? Birds are as far from human as possible. They lay eggs. They fly. Their bones are hollow. They are covered in feathers. Do we share any common traits with them? Just how much individual thought and personality do they have? Share your personal stories of the bird behavior you've witnessed at 1.800.289.KUOW(5869.)

Plus, Cliff Mass joins us with a weekend weather forecast.
