Home sweet home is a very bird friendly place. Although I quit feeding the birds sometime ago when they started fighting over the seed, we are still a very bird friendly place.  On this day in May, we had a heron perched on the garage roof overlooking this duck in the tulips.  Of course that heron may have been watching the goldfish in our pond as well.

There are some 'birds' that are not quite as welcome around here as these feathered fellows in our yard.

This email came to my desktop today. Think about it.

I bought a bird feeder.  I hung it on my back porch and filled
it with seed.  What a beauty of a bird feeder it was, as I filled
it lovingly with seed.  Within a week we had hundreds of
birds taking advantage of the continuous flow of free and
easily accessible food.

But then the birds started building nests in the boards of the
patio, above the table, and next to the barbecue.

Then came the poop. It was everywhere: on the patio tile,
the chairs, the table, everywhere!

Then some of the birds turned mean. They would dive bomb
me and try to peck me even though I had fed them out of my
own pocket.

And others birds were boisterous and loud. They sat on the
feeder and squawked and screamed at all hours of the day
and night and demanded that I fill it when it got low on food.

After a while, I couldn't even sit on my own back porch
anymore. So I took down the bird feeder and in three days
the birds were gone. I cleaned up their mess and took down
the many nests they had built all over the patio.

Soon, the back yard was like it used to be ......... quiet, serene,
and no one demanding their rights to a free meal.

Now let's see......
Our government gives out free food, subsidized housing, free
medical care and free education, and allows anyone born
here to be an automatic citizen.

Then the illegal's came by the tens of thousands. Suddenly our
taxes went up to pay for free services; small apartments are
housing 5 families; you have to wait 6 hours to be seen by an
emergency room doctor; Your child's second grade class is
behind other schools because over half the class doesn't speak
English.  Corn Flakes now come in a bilingual box; I have to
'press one ' to hear my bank talk to me in English, and people
waving flags other than ours are squawking and screaming
in the streets, demanding more rights and free liberties.

Just my opinion, but maybe it's time for the government
to take down the bird feeder.
