Most of us have a tendency to collect a certain class of object. Not necessarily intentionally; not necessarily because we want or like them; but simply because we have a weakness in that direction.

          1. How about one that does impressions? I have a mockingbird neighbor whose favorite hobby is mimicking hawks. He’s quite good at it, much to the chagrin of the other birds.

            I would like to be around magpies, though.

          2. Hawk impressions are preferable, to my mind at least, to the local birds (tuis, I think) who have taken to imitating ring tones. Probably hilarious from their point of view, of course!
