The common cormorant (or shag),
Lays its eggs in a paper bag.
The reason is you see no doubt,
It is to keep the lighting out.
But what these unobservant birds
Never notice is that herds,
Of wandering bears that come with buns
To steal the bags to hold their crumbs.

-Christopher Isherwood

-John James Audubon
