Cute Blog Alert! Nests Are Better When Built on Letters
Blogger asks: Do birds flock to a favorite font?
Dubi Kaufmann was browsing through the photo-sharing site Flickr when he came across a cute picture of a little sparrow setting up a home for his chicks in the letter A on a McDonald’s sign. He decided to put together a collection on Tumblr of all the letter-nesting photos he could, and so his cute blog was born.
But what he learned from the photos was interesting: When Kaufmann compared all the typeface-squatters’ nests, he came to the conclusion that “birds clearly prefer to build their nests inside capital R’s and capital A’s.” Still, birds aren’t too picky – you’ll see that none is too proud to live in a C, or even an M!
