Why can’t humans just leave birds where they find them?

I saw the Pin-tailed Whydah in Uganda…but I would never think to bring one home.  Now there’s a study that warns this brood parasite could break free in the U.S.

Here’s a picture I took of the suspect in his native land.  Very striking bird, making our magpies look modest in the tail length contest.
