Tom Miller's Spectral Electromagnetic Birdometer Device

Tom Miller reveals to the public for the first time in history his new device (a Chromatic Electromagnetic Birdometer) designed to remotely control the flight path of over 1000 local birds within a one-square mile radius.

" I hope to remind people to remember that their connection to nature must not be derailed by our devices. I'll do this by derailing nature with a device. Hopefully this experiment will attract people to the new Depot Park where fresh air, nature, and communion with fellow human beings is freely available to the general public. No WiFi Required." -Tom Miller

No birds will be harmed during this event.
