I was so happy I finally got my "Bird's Eye View" 2.0 installed on my new lap top. It promises to give me, through my computer a view of the world as seen by the birds. As it is a new soft wear I was a little concerned about bugs but I was ready to give it a try. I laughed when I read on the box that my virtual bird would eat any bug it found. I took my lap top to the park, after booting it up I brought up my new program and hit enter.
And on the screen was the park as seen by a bird. I was very impressed by the program as my virtual bird soared around the park showing me everything from 75 feet in the air.

As I watched I began different things that I had never noticed before. The first thing that struck me as odd was the statute of the old general in the center of the park. I had always been bothered by all the pigeon poop all over it, I thought it made it look dirty. But from over head all I noticed was all the litter around the feet of the General. Next as my virtual bird's eye flew to the outer edge of the park everything seemed to be turning a brown hazy color, I looked away from my monitor toward where my program was looking and I did notice it was a little somgy today. Then as my bird looked out of the park and up the street the only thing I noticed was all the trash in the gutter.

There must be a flaw in the program the only thing my virtual bird's eye seem to see was the filth left by my fellow humans. I'm sure they can filter all this ugly mess with 'Virtual Bird's Eye View" 3.0. I can't wait to get it
