Birds and U2

Wild birds make a quick appearance in a interview with Irish band U2 -- consisting of Bono, The Edge, Adam Clayton and Larry Mullen -- about the creation of the new album, "No Line on the Horizon," in Morocco:

Bono: Fez is beautiful little city. It's the religious capital of Morocco, and they have a religious music festival there -- you know, Sufi singers and Bango drummers from all over the world. I was invited to speak there, and I asked the band -- would they be interested in coming along? And surprisingly, they agreed. We set up in a little hotel -- they call them riads -- and it's a hotel around a courtyard. We set up the band in the courtyard with the square sky over our heads and birds flying in used to come [and] s*** on Larry Mullen's drum kit. He wasn't happy with that.
Birds treat everyone equally, don't they?

Years ago someone gave me one of those "field guide to droppings" t-shirts. The very first time I wore it, a bird, ahem, added to the visual material.
