Just ask the bird population around the Math Department building at Emory University. Best part of the story:

Magnolia warblers, Swainson’s thrushes, ovenbirds — no species was safe.

After getting the brush-off from the administration and architects, [John] Wegner stuffed a couple of dead birds into his pockets and whipped them out during a meeting with his boss. Suddenly, he had an audience.

 Now that‘s an academic meeting I wouldn’t have minded attending.
