Parasitic Birds

Each Spring at the Foggy Bottoms Resort and Spa appear two classes of birds: the parasitic Brown-headed Cowbird and unsuspecting honest tax paying Warbler.  Seen above on security camera footage are Sonny and Madge; prolific Cowbirds.  They’re watching to see where a Warbler couple will nest.  At each established nest, Madge will leave one or more of her eggs. Unsuspecting Warblers will raise the oversized Cowbird hatchling often at the expense of their own offspring.  the Face of Everyman had circulated a petition against such unconscionable activity; but had failed to get the necessary signatures.  He pondered mass tort litigation.
