Beaky Clean Fun

Canvassers near my office building passed out fliers decrying bird watching as pornographic. "A private research group, the Good Conduct Society, has discovered Bird Watchers are more sexually active than others," the flier claims. It goes on to vilify the ostensible voyeurs, and their wicked means of debauchery:
The elderly find that Bird Watching is not strenuous. And this erotic experience can be enjoyed privately through binoculars. "Most disturbing," said the the Society's director, Anaida Krok, "are the groups of Bird Watchers seeking vicarious sexual gratification in the woods. Shamelessly, they blatantly observe God's defenseless creatures mating."
I can't help wondering if Anaida Krok is a krok o' bird droppings. I had two lovebirds growing up (true story: their names were Macaroni and Cheese), and they didn't seem too worried about privacy, forgoing the privacy of God's woods or even the broom closet to mate right out there in the open on my nightstand. Does that still count? Was I inadvertently a child bird pornographer?
I'm not making this up; you can see the hard work of the good people at the Good Conduct Society's website, stopbirdporn.org. And remember, Dot Org = legit organization. But the million dollar question for the day remains -- are the bird chastity belt wielders weirder than this li'l gem o' the internets?

We didn't have birds growing up. but when I was in high school, my sister got two hamsters, which we were told were both female. They were wrong. Guess how we found out?

Hamsters are not worried about privacy either.
