I've been noticing lately that there's a lot of guano landing on board the Heart of Gold along with some sort of berries. This would all make sense except for the fact that I haven't been seeing a lot of birds on board.

They were everywhere:
I was suddenly filled with worry because I'd put a new coat of varnish on the portside gunwale the day before. When I checked, it turned out that, magically, all of the birds had confined themselves to landing on the starboard side.
Still, I'm thinking it's time to install a scarecrow.
