Beware of The Birds

It was about 1963 or 64 when on the big island of Hawaii in the shadow of Mona Loa and Mona Kea with company B 3rd Recon Battalion when I first saw the Alfred Hitchcock thriller "The Birds."
So in memory of that night I offer this forum written in the true spirit of Orwell's "Animal Farm" for your reading pleasure.
Awhile ago I bought a bird feeder.I hung it on my back porch. What a beautiful bird feeder it was as I lovingly filled it with seed. Within a week hundreds of birds were taking advantage of the continuous supply of free and easily accessable food. But then the birds started building nests in the boards of the patio, above the table and next to the barbecue. Then came the poop.It was everywhere. On the patio deck, on the table, the chairs, everywhere. Then some of the birds turned mean. They would dive bomb me and try to peck me even though I fed them out of my own pocket! Other birds became boisterous and loud. They sat on the feeder and squawked and screamed at all hours of the night and demanded I refill the feeder when it got low on food. After awhile I could no longer sit on the porch. Finally I had enough already. I decided to take the feeder down but my uncle who did not live with me as well as some of my neighbors complained. They even retained a lawyer to claim that removing the feeder would cause a hardship for the poor innocent birds. I am now at my witts end and hane even contemplated retreiving my old Red Ryder BB gun and shooting them but that would only get me into a lot of trouble.I only want my back yard to be like it was. Quiet. serene and no onr demanding free handouts. SOMEONE PLEASE HELP ME!!!!!
The obvious moral of this story is that America must find away to remove the pesky birds or God forbid someone may start to shoot them and that would be just awful..........Wouldn't it?
