I grew up in Chicago, and I must concur with this article – red-winged blackbirds are simply evil. Every year, the dive-bombing demons attack innocent passersby without warning, without provocation. Their lily-livered apologists, hiding behind such auspicious titles as "conservation ornithologist," try to explain away this behavior as "natural," "instinctive," "protecting their nesting territory." But one look into the coal-black eyes of these minions of Lucifer and you know that's poppycock. These birds have one instinct and one instinct only -- to devour the souls of the living, to rend asunder the very moral fabric of our civilization. Their very name conjures up the essence of iniquity, from the demonic colors to the unnatural oxymoronic name. The only way to get across Grant Park is with a tennis racket to swat the vile creatures away. They should not be conserved; they should be eradicated, and sent back to the pernicious depths from which they came. The fewer of these devil birds polluting our world, the better.
