My favourite piece of non-applicable bird-information in PR* was a
spiel about the alleged eco-friendliness of a housing development that
had obviously been cut and pasted from a North American development.
It promised nesting boxes for woodpeckers.

I wonder, if they did get around to putting them up, what nested in them!

* I regard most media output as PR, not news.
