Back Yard Prejudice

I have a bunch of bird feeders in my back yard. Its cool for the kids (and me). We even have a brood of Eastern Blue Birds growing up.

The bird feed suppliers and the feeders manufacturers market themselves as keeping away certain kinds of birds or squirrels.
Racism, I say.
Why shouldn’t cat birds or cow birds be allowed to eat in my backyard? Maybe they eat more? Maybe they are a bit territorial but these are all important lessons about nature my kids need to see and learn.
If you are maintaining a racist, elitists back yard fantasy. Shame on you.
Open your yard to the real world, as imperfect as it perfectly is.
