crane, majestic, but bad news if you have a pond in your backyard and they find out. We came home from vacation one summer to one standing in our pond. Ate all of my Koi which had been in there x 4 years or so. They will continue to raid your pond as long as they get fed so be prepared to cover it up with good sturdy wire that you can still see thru and feed the existing fish.

DEMAND The U.S. Food and Drug Administration put a stop to hummingbird nectar companies adding red dye #40 to their products! Major bird feeder companies, such as Perky-Pet, are repeatedly told by various animal welfare groups to stop using this dye, yet they refuse to take the health of hummingbirds into consideration and continue using the dye. This chemical purportedly affects hummingbirds by damaging their kidneys! PLZ SIGN AND SHARE IN PROTEST!
Stop Selling Toxic Hummingbird Nectar

Spring is coming. Keeping Birds Safe Around Windows
Naomi Fumble, Stories Impact, Birds Safe, Neck Broken, Backyards Birds, Sweets Life, Newspaper Articles, High Ris Blinds, Lights Shinee
Naomi once read a newspaper article about birds, how lights shining from the windows of high-rises blind the birds. They fly into the glass and, stunned or with necks broken, they drop to the pavement below. “We’re killing the birds.” Rod and Carol stop. “What?” Rod says. Naomi fumbles in her pocket for a tissue. “Nothing.” From the story _Impact_, Sweet Life
Keeping Birds Safe Around Windows
Problems with Windows, Birding Basics
Birds cannot see glass. Birds see trees and shrubs reflected in the windows of our homes and fly towards them. Bird fatalities from window collisions occur frequently in residential areas. You Can Help Make Windows Safe for Birds You can help reduce, and in some cases eliminate, bird-window collisions at your home. The key is to provide birds with the visual cues they need to alert them to the presence of glass.

HUMMINGBIRD Nest building
Ray G. Foster Salem, Oregon Ducks, not hummingbirds, were on Foster's mind when he settled down behind a photo blind near a pond in southern Oregon. "I wasn't having any duck luck so I decided to focus on this hummingbird," says the paper mill worker. He used a 300mm lens to take this unusual photo of a rufous hummingbird collecting fibers from a cattail--presumably to build a #bird of paradise| http://amazing-cooking-tips-jazmyne.blogspot.com
