Birds versus Squirrels June 3, 2006

Posted by randomshme in Daily Shme.

Why is it that people put out bird feeders and get angry when the squirrels eat the bird seed? Birds are descendants of dinosaurs. If birds were bigger, they'd attack you. Ever see a bird look for food, pecking and crawing? Imagine if it were six feet tall? Ten feet tall? Frightening.

Meanwhile, the poor squirrels have gotten a bad rap (as does the gopher). We share a distant relative with the squirrel. That distant relative was relentlessly hunted by the same distant relative of birds. So why are so many people pro-bird and anti-squirrel?

I say, defend our relatives. Screw the birds.
