Pay attention to the details, please.

An associate of mine decided to rant at me about the loss of songbirds in suburban areas. It is his opinion that it's all the fault of crows. Crows eating songbird eggs, according to him, are responsible. Until I pointed out that tearing out trees used by songbirds for nesting, so more houses can be built, might have something to do with it. Until I pointed out that the street department came thru and trimmed all the street trees in mid spring, just at the time those very same songbirds were nesting. I'm a birder. I watch the comings and goings in my yard, in my neighborhood. It ain't crows, people.

We have met the enemy, and he is us.
