If you missed that tweet tweet sound, it’s back. A tipster writes…

The birds at the Watchung Plaza post office in Montclair are back on the counter after a short banishment due to a customer’s complaint.  Apparently a customer came in recently, got irate about something (unrelated to the birds) and then stormed out threatening to call the post master and get the birds removed. They were in deed removed, but have now been “saved” by public outcry.  A regular customer started up a petition to get the birds back and got over 300 signatures on it and the Montclair Times got involved and is going to do a story as well.  The manager at the Watchung branch decided that was enough to allow the birds back.  I got the story today from Alan, the clerk there.

Baristanet applauds the petition signers — brava! And to that irate customer — watch your back. We hear birds can get angry, real angry.
