This looks to be good news for the Ravens and Falcons but less so for the Seahawks, Eagles and Arizona Cardinals.  It's unclear how the findings may apply to team fans (other than the Eagles) - bird brains though they may be.  Songbirds prefer rural settings so the Blue Jays, Orioles and St. Louis Cardinals are in trouble.  Pigeons are exempt as they are the rats of ornithology.
