This might sound crazy but there's been a theory for years link to birds and government surveillance. The conspiracy theory goes back to JFK stating that his assassination was linked to his refusal to allow the CIA to kill off birds so they could be replaced with drones. 

This is probably one of the wildest conspiracies I've ever come across but let's face it there are still people who believe the earth is flat so this doesn't surprise me. There's a movement online backing this theory ran by a college student from Tennessee called "Birds Aren't Real". It's almost laughable until you see almost 3,500 followers on their YouTube, 65,000 on their Instagram and 28,000 on their Twitter page.

I just want to go on record that I believe 100% birds are real and the earth is round. But sadly there are many out there who think the government is spying on you via birds... Bird Brains?
