From the December 2019 Harper’s Findings (I am SO behind in my mag reading):

The United States and Canada were found to have lost 29 percent of their bird populations since 1970.

Eastern gray squirrels eavesdrop on birds.

With other better looking males.

British doctors reported a case of transient Brexit-induced psychosis.

One case?
