How to Keep Your Enemies Close!

"Stop following me around!"

"What is your problem with me?"

Birds spread disease!
They ruin machinery!
They halt progress!
They're mean!

What about being majestic?

Graceful?

Speedy?

Wise?

Beautiful?

Intelligent!

Fabled

"Quoth the raven, nevermore."
You're right, Alfred Hitchcock didn't know what he was talking about...gah!

Do you know what birds do that is beneficial?

"No, I do not!"

We eat bugs

We clean-up by eating your roadkill

We Spread tree seeds, which helps with erosion

Our guano makes excellent fertilizer

We have saved human lives and ecosystems

by giving our own lives

"Stop! I can't listen to any more!"
"Birds are amazing! Is that what you want to hear?"

Yes!

Do you love me now?

"Don't push it!"

I would like to thank my friends and family for challenging my ignorance, fear, and disgust of birds. I now think they are amazing creatures, and I believe we wouldn't be able to survive without them.

A lot can be said about getting to know someone or something before you judge...
