Nature Notes

July 11, 2005

Some brief observations about wildlife in Norway.

  1. Ants. They are everywhere. There are 136,445,254,123,665,001 ants to every Norwegian.
  2. Bats. There must be at least one because it was flying around the garden last night.
  3. Birds. Certain numbers. Sparrows are the cheekiest. Not many seagulls. Bizarrely, hardly any raptors. Very few Norwegian birds talk.
  4. Squirrels. Red ones. They stare at you out of the trees, and go “tttttttttttttvvvvvvvvvvtttttttttiiiiiiiiiitttttt” and then run away.
  5. Elk. Apparently.
  6. Whales. Live in the sea. Not noted for sense of humour, esp. re. Norway and Japan.
  7. Trees. Many many trees. There are 343,565,787,999,999,999,999,999,999,999,005 trees to every Norwegian.
