NPR logo Snarge!



New (to me) word of the day: snarge. Our colleagues at All Things Considered were so intrigued by what happens to birds when they, ahem, encounter aircraft that they went down to the Smithsonian's National Museum of Natural History to get the whole story. Check out what they learned.

Still not sated in the snarge department? Check out a Wall Street Journal article and this tidbit from the museum itself.
