#BlackBirdsMatter #BlackBirdersMatter And to be clear, #BlackLivesMatter  if #AllLivesMatter ! The presented material is both speciesist and racist but not hateful. There is no implication that Prothonotary Warblers, Snowy Owls, LBJs or other non-black birds do not matter, unless appreciation for avian species is somehow a zero-sum game. Bonus points for Prof. J. Drew Lanham, because he used one of my favorite words: crepuscular!
