Here's MY question for The Bird Watching Answer Book

The chickadees that zip around my marsh are always boasting about "bird feeders." They said that anytime you find a spot filled with an unusual and unnatural supply of food, it's free for the taking! They said a lot of people are really nice and put all that food out just for birds.

So if that's true, how come every time I find a little pond filled with colorful fish, people come running out yelling and waving their arms and chasing me off? One of my friends got SHOT for eating those colorful fish, and people have thrown rocks at me for the same.

Ain't I a bird?
