They aren't baseball fans anyway. It's new so they are there to be seen and say they were there. They'd be the first to cry if a baseball hit them or their siblings.

after you enjoy the new ballpark to show some support for the Vikings getting a new home of their own. It would be a shame if they left.

Bird watching. Well, that certainly makes it all worthwhile.

This bird is fun to watch! I was at that game last thursday and the bird was a hit with the fans. Just another bonus you get with outdoor baseball. Go Twins.

Agreed, you should remind Zygi of that next time you encourage him to pay for the entire thing by himself.

Isn't there a government program to protect these innocent victims? What a shame..

I agree, I am offended that moths are being killed because of lighting from the new stadium. It is racist (yes, moths are a race of species), to allow a falcon to continue to offend the moths. Meanwhile, the crowd cheers this behavior. I'm filing a $10,000,000 lawsuit on behalf of the moths. Proceeds will go the the moth foundation to prevent further discrimination against the beautiful creatures.

This goes to show that animals will adapt to their surroundings! We can't have that! We have to show that capitalism and Urban sprawl will destroy all animals, which are just as if not more important than humans. I say we spend thousands and thousands of taxpayer dollars to move all these animals to a protected area where they can really be happy and safe. Ha Ha!

He was shown at a previous game too. I hope he keeps coming back. He's good entertainment.
