Awww cmon it’s a freekin Bird 9 million acres this smells real funny like 200 thousand dollars for a hammer funny !
9 million acres equals 14,000 square miles.
Look at it like a square 120 miles x 120 miles.
That’s a lot of land!
It is because of the amount of land the male needs to have as his territory in order to mate. It’s not about food. I think if people knew this, they would burn the 9 million acres down in rage. One bird requires an obscene amount of territory in order to reproduce and everything must revolve around his pecker.
