Toddlers throwing snowballs at the bids...

We have many birds coming in the garden , but only yesterday I noticed some toddlers trying to scare (especially in the little birds and throwing snowballs at them...

I went out it stopped... But Had to work came back and there was bits of snow all over the (crumpled sort..).

Why can't parents be sensible... It is bad enough for these birds to survive in the cold....

Toddlers???
My daughter is what I would class as a toddler,nearly 3,she can't throw,let alone aim at something.For me,it sounds lik a bit of harmless fun,birds aren't stupid and see things a mile off and move out the way.if a 3 year old could aim and throw like a cricketer hitting the stumps it may be of concern but unless these toddlers are actually 7 years plus I would out they would do any harm
