    Does it mean that all birds, regardless of species, see exactly the same range of wavelengths? Somehow I doubt it.

    Kudos to the kid for the out of the box thinking, but journalist should be sent back to the High School.

    unseen crashes

    And, even before that, didn't Bill Gates make a fortune out of making patches for windows to avoid unseen crashes? :biggrin:
