Stupid Bird

A recent and frequent visitor to the bird feeder. If I ever quit feeding the birds it will because of this one's insaitable appetite and the constant who-whoing.

Mourning Dove

Give Conservatism a try, Norm. Then you could just shoot the damned thing.

Mmmmm....dove. Yummy :-)

Thanks for sharing pics of your feathered friends, Norm! Who-whoing gluttons aside, birds are pretty cool!

Especially ducks. I really like ducks.

And if I ever get a duck at my feeder I'll post a pic and name him Frenetic. :)

Quack!

I like ducks... apart from the rape.

Here in Spain—just like in Seattle—we only have a couple species of birds: pigeons, gulls, and sparrows (but in Spain no crows or starlings, at least not here in the city). We also have stray cats in the interior courtyard of my building which we share with about 15 other apartments. I don’t mind the cats except when they are fighting or in heat. I despise the pigeons pretty much all the time. I control the cats and the pigeons with a powerful squirt gun. Who-who meet squirt-squirt.

Do the cats keep the pigeon (or other) population down? IT seems that bird brains are a delicacy for the little felines.

The thing is, for as hungry as these stray cats seem to be, they can't be bothered to bother the birds.

Maybe the bird is an illegal immigrant.

I asked him for his papers, he didn't seem to understand asking time and again, who-who.

That was very clever. You win this round.

Cut out the millet if you are feeding that and use 100% Oil Sunflowers seeds. It helps limit the doves that love millet. But for the most variety of birds use a small amount of millet in a mix for groudfeeders.
