Why are silly or stupid people called 'birdbrain'?

We have birds visiting our garden on a daily basis. We also have fruits that I know we can eat and there are some I see birds enjoying such as the Noni and curry leaf fruits which I did not know we could eat but now -thanks to the Internet I know they are packed with goodness. How do the birds know? This is a million dollar question. Then we have the hawthorn fruits that look so attractive but birds will not go anywhere near them, I will not try them too as if birds cannot eat them surely they are not edible. And we call stupid people 'birdbrain' - think again

I agree...English has such words created by birdbrains. Sigh..there simply is no logic to English. Very difficult language to learn. Should they be called assbrain? Nitwit is another. I don't know how they can test the IQ of nit. May be they have the technologies we are unaware of.
