You know those enormous birds that sprouted recently on lawns all across Westport? The ones promoting Project Return’s annual Birdhouse Auction April 3 at the Inn of Longshore?
According to WestportNow.com, at least 14 of them have “disappeared.” I’d use the word “stolen,” but that’s because I remember my own teenage years, when I helped more than a few street signs “disappear.”
These birdhouses are a much more alluring target than road signs. Of course, they’re also harder to hide in a basement or closet. Not that I’m telling parents all over town to look there immediately ;).
And, without clear proof, I certainly won’t accuse Westport’s young people of doing something I would have done. Times are tough for everyone. You never know what will show up on eBay these days, do you?
