Misrepresentation

So I was walking through the Boulder Book Store, which is quite a fabulous place to peruse the latest titles or old favorites, and there on display is a book titled something along the lines of “Wild Colorado.” And to exemplify said “wildness,” some crafty editor placed a picture of a bright yellow bird … canary, parrot, hummingbird … I really don’t know enough about avian life to tell you what particular¬†kind of winged creature it was …

And I’m not saying that birds aren’t wild. I’m simply suggesting that a photo of a bear or a mountain lion might have been more representative of the chosen adjective. Colorado’s mountainous habitats are home to these beasts … we might as well use them for marketing, don’t you think?
