Some birds, however, remain monogamous until either the male or female dies, and some female birds have a neat trick that they can resort to in emergencies—they can store the sperm of males, and use it to fertilize their eggs, for up to three months. Fee, the daughter of a prominent citizen, had an affair with a married politician. None of Meggie's other surviving brothers ever marry, and Drogheda gradually becomes a place filled with old people.

    But you may be surprised to learn that the family of vertebrates to which modern birds are most closely related is the crocodileswhich evolved, like dinosaurs, from a population of archosaur reptiles during the late Triassic period.

As Nat later walks to the beach to dispose of dead birds, he notices what appear to be whitecaps on the sea, but it is actually a great line of seagulls waiting for the tide to rise.
