Fashionable Flier

I watched from my kitchen window this morning as a Mynah bird attempted to steal my neighbor's newspaper. As I waited to see which section it would read first (sports, entertainment or world news?) it succeeded in removing the plastic bag, which it then wrapped around itself.

Back in Chicago I had a friend who was the display window designer for Sacs Fifth Avenue who would come to parties draped in layers of plastic bags. The outfits were quite spectacular, although they always looked like they would be too hot to wear for long.

The Mynah tried various styles before flying off fully clothed in clear plastic. That was one trendy bird!
