Last I heard, bird crap never polluted entire watersheds, birds never
overfished the oceans, and birds have not generally destroyed the
environment to a point beyond reclamation. Oh, and birds do not force
people to feed them, nor have birds over hunted humans to extinction.
You need to get your basic cause/effect facts straight.
I had my cause/effect facts straight. Sorry to offend :o) Mentioned it
because I don't like interfering with animals natural feeding and
migration, unless they all migrate to my back yard :o)
At my previous Florida residence, I had wooded lots on two sides - saw
gopher tortoises, burrowing owls, possum, raccoons, fox, hawks,
scorpions, 8" centipede thingys, snakes...didn't feed any of them.
Many young birds fall from the nest, or are booted out by their parents to
encourage flying. They are then fed on the ground by the parents till they
get the feel of their wings. I have seen mocking birds thus on the ground
for several days before flying. They try to hide but mama knows where they
are. A young sparrow hawk was able to fly up to the roof of the house in
one day and flew well the next.
This is a very hazardous time for the young birds but that's the way it is.
Best to let mother nature do it her way. But it's OK to move the youngster
from a precarious situation. Mama will find her young if not moved far.
