Veggie Chip Maneuvers

Any single green thing has a fairly good chance of being noticed – and perhaps sampled – by a nearby avian.

Chances improve if that green thing is lurking in a pile of assorted other non-green things.

If the green thing turns out to be tasty, it may be singled out for further scrutiny.

Take veggie chips, for instance.

(The setup: sometimes Mommy enjoys a late afternoon snack of veggie chips (potato = yellow, tomato = red, spinach = green).)

Oh. Interesting! A pile of things with some green things in it.
