The arms race between regular and brood parasite birds (like the cuckoo) is really fascinating. Birds will inspect their eggs pre-hatch and if they don't match well enough, sometimes they will expel the parasite from their nest. Birds are crazy in general.

Kind of curious what reaction you'd get for trying Welsh, Gaelic, Breton, Occitan, Basque, or Sami. I don't know, maybe Welsh and Gaelic are the only ones that would actually change the color that's already on the map.


I was also thinking that (at least with Welsh and Gaelic) and I think you'd probably get a light blue response, or maybe a red one.

Sami exist in Sweden and Norway as well as Finland, so definitely at least one color would be changing.
How fleeting are all human passions compared with the massive continuity of ducks.
