The Slice

The Wednesday Slice question

Yesterday afternoon, a gull screeched while gliding over a South Hill parking lot.

A little boy, maybe 4 years old, said “Look Dad, an eagle.”

OK, he's just a little guy. No harm done. But it made me wonder.

Considering that we live here in “Near Nature” country and so many among us enjoy camping, hiking and what not, do you think kids here know a bit more about wildlife than typical American children?
