House finches

Before I wage war on pro-house finch people, I’m offering a warning: If you live east of a line from Texas up through the Rocky Mountain states and you accept house finches but hate house sparrows, European starlings and/or other introduced species, you’re about to find yourself on the wrong side of science.

Get your ducks in a row.  I’m about to wage war on your ignorance.  You’ll be embarrassed to find yourself on the losing side of this debate…

[Update] And yes, I’m in the kind of mood to be contrary.  Besides, I think it’s good to throw some fact into the frying pan once in a while so simmering assumptions get challenged before they’re served.
