That's just silly. Today's sophisticated way of life requires something more sophisticated than cash. Yes, you can pay some of your bills in notes if you really want to traipse down to the bank or post office and hand them over. But how do you pay for your online purchases?

It is a brood parasite, which lays its eggs in the nests of other bird species, particularly of Dunnocks, Meadow Pipits, and Eurasian Reed Warblers.
