Well, in this case it's a Fast Radio Burst station.
I confess that when the weather warms up, I still listen to the Boston stations of my youth like WVBF (some of the others, like WBCN have changed format)
I haven't listened to much local radio since the radio in my car died, but VBF used to be one of them. When last I listened, BCN was off the air, though, and ZLX was still Classic Rock, but playing stuff from the 90s (kind of an oxymoron there). I'll have to check to see what BCN is up to. I imagine it will become like MEX, appearing and disappearing at random intervals.

That's wonderful. There have been some amazing animal intelligence studies done on birds. They can recognize a large vocabulary, shapes, objects, colors, use deductive reasoning. And between their beaks and their claws, they're very dexterous (I once designed an odd alien species derived from birds). It's by no means far fetched that there may have been a "civilization" of birds more advanced than average.
