Red wing blackbirds – I dislike them alot

Sort of in response to Zombies are Magic – when we first moved to Wisconsin I thought the red winged blackbird was very pretty. What interesting coloring!

However after having been attacked by them multiple times around town, for no other reason than my sheer being, I’ve often thought to myself ‘I don’t really like these birds.’

Having seen signs at the local gardens about how they are federally protected I couldn’t believe it. Another conspiracy to let birds roam wild in the highly cultivated gardens. Mind I generally think of myself as a nature lover and general Taoist and such but I don’t really like these birds…

Too bad they are federally protected by the Migratory Bird Treaty Act. Intentionally harming a red wing exposes one to a $250,000 fine and two years’ imprisonment on a felony conviction. Whoa!!! These bird are jerks!
