Homeowners can fill backyard bird feeders from inside their houses
I thought I’d share the following press release from ClickON Bird Feeders:

ClickON Bird Feeders announced today the release of its remote-controlled ClickON Bird Feeder System, which allows homeowners to refill their bird feeders from up to 100 feet away with the click of a button.

Many homeowners with bird feeders — including seniors and the infirm — often stop refilling their feeders altogether during the cold winter months, and their busy schedules often preclude them from regularly refilling their feeders during the rest of the year, according to Nathan Arthurs, the founder of ClickON Bird Feeders.

A little bird told me that area songbirds have decided to come out with a remote-controlled Bird System of their own … which will allow them to fly a little robot bird to the remote-controlled bird feeders from clear across the yard when they peck on a little button.

The scuttlebutt is that in response to this, ClickON Bird Feeders may be coming out with a Robot Bird Watcher that can be placed in the windows of every home in America in early 2008.

U.S. songbirds are checking with Midwestern farmers to see if anyone is interested in growing remote-controlled bird seeds for sale. Wild Birds Unlimited stores, led by Mike Williams, owner of the Pleasant Hill, California, store and local songbird activist and vice-president of Mt. Diablo Audubon Society, appears to be bankrolling the songbirds in their robotic endeavors.

Isaac Asimov, popular science fiction novelist and author of “I Robot,” a collection of his brilliant robot stories, is rumored to be rolling over in his grave.
