My Daily POST! (A bird, too.)


The post is awesome, as is the bird. 🙂

Notice the sign:  Is it dangerous for the birds or the people?  I assume it is the birds, given all that Wonder bread floating around, and given the fact they get dependent on humans’ feeding them.  But staring eye to eye with some of these critters:  I was having rooster attack flashbacks!

  1. Would you want this lovely critter to become dependent on YOU?

    Enjoyed post! Lily I have a question to ask you. I feed my birds also, well once a week as I want them to eat my bugs. My problem is I have a thousand black birds coming into feed and the little ones are left with nothing. Those black birds swoop in and feed is gone, and I put out quite a bit. Any suggestions? Thanks and God Bless, SR

    People love to feed the wildlife. Locally, there was an issue with bacterial counts in the lake water at a local park from the food and more birds than it could sustain naturally. Really, it’s not good for birds or humans.

    • I understand how it happens because it is fun to have them come close, but then to feed them garbage!!! Also, I don’t think folks realize how aggressive some fowl can be. Having your wee one surrounded by big geese can be dangerous.

    that is a lovely Heron, do you know which type it is? we have a sign at the local lake that suggests no one feeds the birds, but everyone does. the resident Mallards have their fill and the migrants far away from the people.

    • It is a Black-crowned Night Heron. People have fed the birds at this small man-made pond for years and years. I doubt it will stop. One thing good was that a few families at least had actual bird food instead of white bread and cookies. This guy gets his own food primarily–not vegan!

    Our resident heron gets fed bread but eats frogs too so that must count as a mixed diet. Great pictures.

    • They obviously thrive regardless. The same could probably be said of backyard feeders, but the birds are opportunistic, and if I don’t feed them and enjoy them, they will find something else in your yard. But that’s a long way to fly!

  6. Good “post”.

    And I just deleted a lot of strong opinions. 🙂

I would love to hear from you!
