Posted:Its been bothering me.. a poll in the pub has not been enlightening either.
Where and how exactly do birds sleep at night? I believe they 'roost'...but do they all have nests..or do they just pick a branch and perch? And do they hang on with their feet and stay upright all night...or do they lie down sideways (!) and curl up? Ive never seen a sleeping bird....


Tomorrows World isnt on anymore...Does that mean its tomorrow now?

Posted:Depends on the bird... Woodpeckers sleep in a hollow in a tree, others build nests, others stand on branches and sleep, others sit on the ground and sleep.

After much consideration, I find that the view is worth the asphyxiation.

I may disagree with what you have to say, but I will defend to the death your right to say it.
