Bunny Ultramod: “Having known a few birders, I'm a bit surprised this hasn't turned into a shooting war.”
corb: “Wait, I figured it out, they're trolling us!”
oneirodynia: “By far the greatest threat to bird populations is habitat loss due to climate change, sprawl, and increased farming. Getting rid of all the cats won't solve that much bigger problem.”
Toekneesan: “very now and then one would squawk a rather alarming squawk, and all the other birds would tilt their head. He soon realized they were actually looking at the sky with one eye, and what they were looking at was hawks[…]”
caryatid: “In fact, if cat predation were as big a threat to bird populations as it's been hyped lately, those populations would have died out long ago.”
caryatid: Most cats live in urban areas. So do most birds.
corb: “We have one person saying that it makes them sad not to be able to feed the birds, but I don't see how that's any different from someone saying it makes them sad not to be able to feed the cats.”
pracowity: One invasive species (domestic cats, Felis catus)
