#4 Statement

America's Seven Deadly Sins
"#6: Mine (keen sense of environmental entitlement)"

Environmental shortsightedness in all its forms.   Waste, gluttony, selfishness, wanton destruction, rejection of responsible alternatives to the status quo, disposable culture.

The central symbolic element here is a fat, young cowbird, sitting in the nest of an approaching mother robin, waiting to be fed.   Cowbirds are parasitic nesters; they lay their eggs in other bird’s nests and leave them for the host parent to raise.   The young cowbird will push out the other eggs in the nest, and even after having grown larger than the host parent,   will still sit in the nest waiting to be fed.
