Bruno's Gone to the Birds

The Puzzler

RAY: Here's the answer. It had to do with the wind. Bruno noticed that the wind was blowing, and just like when you come into a landing at an airport, the birds were doing the same thing. They were flying into the wind. If they flew in with the wind at their backs, they missed the birdfeeder altogether.

TOM: I can see it now. They come down; they trip over the end of the feeder and fall down on the ground!

RAY: Exactly. If the wind is blowing from the north they're flying in from the south. And of course on the days when it isn't windy…

TOM: It doesn't matter!

RAY: So who's our winner?

TOM: Our winner is Larry Barton from Kettering, Ohio. Congratulations, Larry!
