hello everyone,

since most of you live next to the Puget Sound, home of the J and K orca
pods, i thought you might be interested in this piece about a captive orca
learning how to mimic human speech. (yes, i know this is not a bird story,
but as an ornithologist, i do make some comparisons to birds in it):
