This is really an ornithology issue, I mean, aside from the book. One would presume that the authors think we are to look to animal behavior as a model or justification for human behavior. I don't understand why a children's book on this matter would be needed, as children aren't really capable of understanding the psychological, anthropological or cultural issues that are suggested by the birds' behavior.
What next? Spot Eats His Own Poop!
