I saw the neighbors’ woodchuck shuffling around in our backyard in an amble that also caused every sparrow in the world to fly away from our bird feeder. Also, if you’re missing a sparrow, it’s probably flying back to you after visiting our bird feeder this afternoon.

How many spare rows of sparrows would you estimate are missing?
They are hard to count, but it seemed like just one layer all around the bird feeder, which is maybe six inches across and twelve inches high, so as you remember from geometry this implies a surface area of all kinds of feathers.
