A teenage birdwatching influencer has taken aim at the Royal Society for the Protection of Birds (RSPB) for a poster depicting female members of bird species as smaller than males.

Mya-Rose Craig, 19, known to many as ‘Birdgirl,’ took to Twitter to blast a poster showing different-sized birds as an example of “sexism in birding.”

“If you aren’t into nature, you won’t know that when you go into #birdwatching hides there are often posters up to help you with bird ID,” Craig wrote.

“But why should female birds always be shown as a smaller picture insert?? #Sexisminbirding?”
