Missed Corrections

Abbey from FL writes in with a comment about Lee's question in the last episode, where he asked "What is the only bird that can see the color blue?" Abbey sent us a link from Nature.org which states that most birds can see blue and some can even see ultraviolet light on account of a fourth color receptor (beyond the red, yellow and blue theyr share with us). This was discovered by introducing yellow breasted chats to taxidermied chats...the males have the ultraviolet color on their chests and the females do not. The bird behavior adjusted based on the sex of the taxidermied bird introduced.
