A prince of a paramour
National Geographic
He builds her a cozy love nest. He woos her with long serenades. Once they start a family, he babysits. The guy is such a catch that one lady after another shows up to play house with him.

Cleaner water near New York City sees an uptick in humpback whales
The Associated Press via Phys.org
Maybe they want to sing on Broadway. Humpback whales, the gigantic, endangered mammals known for their haunting underwater songs, have been approaching New York City in greater numbers than even old salts can remember. While it's not exactly clear why the whales are returning, it can be assumed that a greater attention to the environment and New York City's surrounding waters is a probable cause for the jump in sightings.
