Bird Society To Rename Birds

The American Ornithological Society will rename birds whose original namers have since been associated with racism. First we removed the statues associated with racism, and now we're renaming birds that used to perch on those statues. 

The virtue warriors, aka Racial Justice Movement, think that this might result in more interest in birding...the term bird brain comes to mind. Although John James Audubon himself has been deemed a racist, that society will retain his name because the name has come to represent more than just a person. 

Perhaps the term jailbird discriminates against our feathered friends?
