Nimby

Nimby is an acronym for not in my back yard, as in I don't mind you building a nuclear waste facility but nimby. & 50-100 white cockatoos screeching at 7.00 a.m. from the guava tree down the back is definitely nimby.
A solitary bird tearing small branches from a tree might qualify as a lordly & isolate satyr; but an excited flock such as this has more in common with the plebeians baying for blood at the Colosseum or a group of drunken English soccer supporters tearing a town apart.
