If you had the faintest trace of knowledge of the subject of ecology
you would know that I had. It seems that you don't understand what is meant
by a "niche".

The stork comment is quite appropriate as the level of scientific understanding
which you have demonstrated is extremely poor. This is why I used that 
analogy. I acquired my understanding of the point about habitats at about the
same time as I acquired knowledge of the nature of the human reproductive
process. Hence I think it is reasonable to draw the comparison.
