I don't think so
My cats are "outdoor" cats during the midafternoon if it's nice out... so only summer. They stay within the backyard, sometimes one tries to sneak out but when we catch him, he comes running back to the yard
One day, a couple years ago, there was a mother robin sitting on top of the fence. It was squaking and squaking away because there were 2 cats near her baby which was on the ground, try to fly away. Luna was sitting right beside it and when the baby tried to fly away, she would gentle put herself over it so it wouldn't fly away. And then she would just sit beside it, like she was trying to protect it??? or play?? then she finally let the baby go. My other cat, Max, would go up to it really slowly, trying to smell it, then it would flap its wings then get scared and back off.
They didn't hurt the bird and it didn't look like they had any intention to.... so I wouldn't think it's mean at all, at least with my cats anyway. Plus your cat can't get to them
