    Yep, we routinely have manipulated clutch size and handled both eggs and chicks in the field, mama bird doesn't care.

    Do bird people like Canada geese?

    What are your favorite bird expressions? I feel like I don't say "a bird in the hand is worth two in the bush" nearly enough. Nor "for the birds".

    Are you triggered by talks of "one stone?"

    They aren't so bad in their native range. Have you seen any murmuration videos?

    Because they are named after the country, Canada, not after the people that live in that country Canadians.

    so why are there birds with "American" in their name? a quick Wikipedia search reveals the American black duck, American flamingo, American white pelican and so on.

    America is not a country
    The United States of America ('Merica) is, I'm guessing that's just a bit cumbersome to say
    So American is kin to saying European or Asian, doesn't necessarily specify 'Merican

    Yeah, but Canadian is used as an adjective for all types of nouns that aren't people.

    The kookaburra is very, very underrated.

    The are of decent size, their call sounds like a laugh and they routinely take meat from outdoor grills.

    Except car. Nobody talks about Canadian cars.

    yeah, it's just hard for me to think of them as anything but pests.

    Because it's safer for the birds to not have kids touching their eggs, If you thought you could mess with nature all you'd have effed it up cookout.

    I mean, technically they're named Branta canadensis and the common name is what it is. There's a Canada Warbler as well and I think a Canada pine...
