I this case I'm with Tyler; I was confused too trying to imagine butterbutts crowding into birdhouses. I think the operative rule for all kinds of communication like this should be, if there is a chance it can be misinterpreted, it will be, and clarity is our best defense against miscommunication.

Tyler lighten up!
If this had been a profound rarity, there would have been cause for
your inflexible attitude, but that was not the case here!
There are few enough posts coming to MD Birding anymore as it is and
if people perceive that every word of a text is going to be critically
scrutinized they may well decide not to bother.
I can accept that you might have been confused initially, but i doubt
it. I think you were just looking for an excuse to add the text that
you have now done. What did you really accomplish by doing so?
