Well, how many birds there are vs. how many drones? Granted.
But:
How much is known about behavior of birds (travelling routes and seasons, resting areas, survival instinct, fear, ...) vs. the behavior of drone pilots in the hunt the next best picture or video to upload to their social networks (which could be asocial behavior documented on social networks...weird)

Do you really want to see a drones last picture of a real crash being being that of a poor pilot's scared face?
