In order to survive and maintain a social pecking order, birds tend to form cliques from an early age. These cliques are formed at school, and they become increasingly more exclusive as the birds grow up. It is unheard of for a bird who comes from a lower ranking to associate with the popular birds. Unfortunately, this jay had a classic “new kid” moment when he switched schools, and didn’t get the memo over what his level of social status was. He attempted to sit with the popular kids, and is now being forced to move his belongings piece by piece while the others look on and laugh.
