I've seen several websites saying you should feed birds eggshells so they can lay more eggs (see here or here), surely they would be more nutritious than eating chicks which are mostly feathers? But if you spend your life eating bark, a baby bird is probably their equivalent of a Creme Egg.

Dunno if this should be an 0bv10u5 Thing, but I just discovered that the inventor of what I presumed was called the Great Head Shield (device for tunnel digging) was a bloke called Greathead.

The Greathead Shield was a modified version of a shield designed by someone called Barlow, which was a smaller version of the one designed by one of the Brunels.

What you presume is called the Barlow shield is actually called the Bar Low shield, because it was designed for tunnelling at a reasonably shallow depth.
