Letter to a man on the bus.

Dear Sir,

Thank you for your comments on the female entrants in the US Open this year. However, I'm afraid that inasmuch as the 'exotic birds' you mentioned are concerned, you've missed a few vital entries including but not limited to:

  • The golden pheasant
  • The quetzal
  • The hoopoe
  • The Bali bird of paradise
  • The puffin
  • The Lear's macaw
  • The California condor
  • The African crowned crane
  • I might also suggest some of the members of the ratite family, as they are particularly interesting - though what tennis has to do with ornithology I have no idea other than the observation it seems to have turned some among us into common tits.
