IS IT BIGGER THAN A SPARROW?

Dougal MacDougal Look(ed) at Birds less seriously perhaps, but with a kind of contemporary cool more likely to attract followers than the backyard lectures delivered by the ""Bird-Lady"" to a group of goggle-eyed youngsters she calls ""Small Fry."" Both the ""Small Fry"" 's chirping introduction of themselves (""We three. Matthew and Maggie and me. We're bird watchers"") and the lady's appearance in a broad brimmed sunhat unintentionally reinforce the hobby's eccentric image, and the portfolio of bird pictures the lady leaves as a parting present to her young friends offers an attractively designed, but not necessarily accurately colored, selection of common birds.
