Hello everyone,

those who believe in the power of love will find this research to be very
affirming.

A new study finds that birds who freely choose their own mates have 37
percent more offspring than those which were paired up by researchers in a
sort of avian ‘arranged marriage’ — findings that have far-reaching
implications for conservation and captive breeding practices
