    It’s funny, for all the years I went to Eastport as a youngling, I thought that seagull was a permanent fixture on that tie-off at the harbor. It just turns out every time I’ve been there, a seagull perches almost perfectly still in exactly that spot. I wonder if that bird is a special agent for the US Coast Guard? Their Eastport base is right there, after all!

      I am reminded of something I read about awhile ago. In the world of espionage and covert operations, there have been many stories that seem almost too outrageous to be true. One such story is the tale of the CIA’s Acoustic Kitty, a project that was attempted in the 1960s as a means of using cats to gather intelligence.

      The story of Acoustic Kitty has since become something of an urban legend, with many people doubting that such a project could ever have been attempted. However, declassified documents from the CIA have confirmed that the project was real and that it did indeed involve surgically implanting listening devices into cats.

      There are a number of conspiracy theories that involve birds, some of which are more well-known than others. Most notably, the theory suggesting that birds are being used as a means of surveillance by various organizations, including governments and corporations. Proponents of this theory argue that birds are able to move around undetected and can easily observe and report on people’s activities.

      Based on earlier CIA research, perhaps this conspiracy theory might hold some credibility.
