ON MY SOAPBOX…I Ain’t no ornithologist


WRITTEN BY: SHEILA TOLLEY

 

I have a bird feeder in my yard that I fill and maintain all year.  I also have a bird bath. I enjoy watching the birds. That being said, I had to google “ornithologist” to be sure I spelled it correctly. So, for sure…I am no specialist in birds. I know cats are their primary natural enemy and that about sums up my bird knowledge.

BUT, I am sure that everything seems to be political nowadays and Cowbirds are Democrats.

These birds are infamous for laying their eggs in other birds’ nests. The female cowbird notes when a potential host bird lays its eggs, and when the nest is left momentarily unattended, the cowbird lays its own egg in it.

The female cowbird may continue to observe this nest after laying eggs. Some bird species (most likely Republicans) have evolved the ability to detect such parasitic eggs, and may reject them by pushing them out of their nests. But, the female cowbird has been observed  attacking and destroying the remaining eggs of such birds. As a consequence, this dissuades further removals.

These are true facts about Cowbirds. It does not take a vivid imagination to visualize BLM and other Democrats wearing a brown hat and black feathered frocks. I can just see them now, can’t you? Looting, destroying, and TWEETING about reparations.

The next thing these sorry, thieving cowbirds will demand is that we…..

DEFUND CATS!
