Seed bombs for guerilla artists and gardeners who oppose the USDA Bye Bye Blackbird policy using an avicide called DRC-1339
Bird Droppings
cow manure, compost, red clay, sunflower seed

A community engagement/art action piece poetic in it's almost futile effort to re-create/re-grow both the birds and the food source denied them by a U.S. Department of Agriculture program called "Bye Bye Blackbird." This widely-used program permits sunflower farmers in the plains states to bait and poison millions of migrating blackbirds every year in order to financially protect against crop losses. Ironically, most sunflower seed marketed and sold as birdseed in stores today was grown in a region where birds were poisoned.
