of course it's possible!

i clearly remember, after all these years, hearing a distressed kitten
yowling from a small tree in Discovery Park. it sounded so pitiful! I spent
a few minutes trying to find the wee beastie and was ready to climb the
tree (binoculars, scope and all) when i spied a starling sitting
comfortably in the branches, yowling his little heart out.
