Many more birds are here, though.
I especially love Red Winged Blackbirds.
The RW Blackbirds are my favorite too. We get a bunch of them every spring and summer. I love their distinct song.

Animal testing is a terrible idea; they get all nervous and give the wrong answers.

I once told an annoying telephone canvasser that I was sorry, but i had to go because my house was currently being attacked by birds, just like in the movie, aahhhh! And then hung up mid-sentence.
That is hysterical

I liked birds too D: except as a kid I didn't really know how to look after them. There was once when we did have a orphaned dove that we raised until it could just manage to fly.
Then one day, as it was practicing, it flew into the neighbor's yard where the two great noisy dogs they kept in there promptly devoured it. I had nightmares about my poor dove for almost an entire month...

I swear these guys are like cat. like the whole... you are my human thing. one of these fellows tried to eat my camera, and when I pushed him away with a finger, not only would he stubbornly not budge an inch, but also bit the offending finger D<

You should have seen these guys fight off those cockatoos!

Today's dish is... sunflower seeds.
