Bird Island and Its Many Victims

Overall, there are four major islands and twenty-three minor ones, one of which is inhabited exclusively by birds. They sit fairly far up in the northern hemisphere of their planet, but weather is equivalent to the southern hemisphere of our Earth. (This is due to the axial tilt being reversed on the planet the N. Tatters Isles are on.) A (not so) brief note about the "bird island" This island is preserved as a park, the kind that regular human activity is not allowed on. Occasionally, park caretakers will perform controlled burns of the dense forests for safety reasons, but generally the locals leave the bird population alone. The reverse is far from true, though. Travel guides for the western side of the Isles are littered with pleas to not feed the birds. The consequences tie between a rapid bird explosion, the largest birds pestering tourists, and birds fighting amongst each other over food. The latter results in a subgenre of home movies, nicknamed "bird wars"
