Dear Mark, Harald and all,
the question is whether the starlings were singing Rakete b together with other segments of the Ursonate before the visit of Schwitters? I think they might have picked it up from the local rocketry enthusiasts.

Maybe Schwitters learned the Ursonate from the starlings, rather than the other way round.
