Well, obviously it is going to be something about radiation.
Check out my latest post at 10,000 Birds.
Maybe it’s only the stupid ones living in all that radiation. Did you ever think of that??
What are the characteristics of the Chernobyl area that have changed? Yes, there is radiation.
But the radiation has meant one main thing; humans have left the area. The roads are, for the most part, free of motor vehicles traveling at 100kph. Several million people have fled and the human presence is limited to few score police, soldiers, and researchers.
The removal of the human population may represent a gross simplification of the environment that makes the extra brain power superfluous. Yes, a bird has more of a chance of getting lunched by a wolf but it is far less likely to get run over by a car or shot for fun or food by a hunter.
Art, interesting idea. Have you read the post?
Yes. I found it interesting.
