And you wad your panties up over this why? WHY?!! And I believe I have seen about all of us from Scottsville with something removed.
Why? Because AGAIN, you spout nothing but lies. Bothing was removed for bad language. What's being removed is SPAM. Try reading what's removed, and get back to the TOPIC before they see you are nothing but Spam.

Hi! I love Blue birds. Sorry about what happened. We had birds crashing into our front window too, two or three times a week. My husband says there are three main causes for this. 1. Territorial - during mating season where they see their refection and think it's another male and attack it. 2. If you have two windows (one each on opposite sided of a house) and the birds think it's an open flyway through and fly right into one of the windows. 3.(Can't think of third one - I'll get back with you). Anyway, we've stopped almost all birds hitting windows by taping 2 strips of Surveyor tape about 24 in long directly on the center region of the window (space accordingly to take up much of window space). It does not have to be "Surveyor Tape". Almost anything will work - as long as the birds can see it's not a "fly through" flyway. In high rises in cities, they will even tape cutouts of owls or hawks on the windows cause those are predators of most birds and scare them away. Let me know if this helps.

When a wild bird comes and lands in your hand on its own free will, it's provides insight and understanding that can't be appropriately relayed to other peoples. I once had a rooster that would stand in front of my sliding glass doors while I was learning to play the mandolin. I thought it liked the music, but it was really messing up my steps. Then I realized it wasn't listening to me, but saw it's own reflection in the glass, and wanted to fight the intruder. To relieve him of his jealous anxiety, I wired a mirror inside the BACK of a wire cage and placed it where he could see it when he was on the step. I was not prepared for the entertainment that rooster provided me for the next two weeks, while he attempted to get "the chicken in the mirror". It is now one of my favorite songs on the mandolin.

I hope so. This copy and paste junk is so useless and dumb.
I know, and I know the trolls here don't like their posts being removed, but that happens with spam here.
I had a baby Robin in my trash can. Yep. Trash can. No idea how it got in, but it couldn't get out. Momma bird was kicking up some dust about it. Luckily, I tipped the can over and the bird was able to hop out. The birds now hang out at my front door. Interesting.

Oh how funnny, but it does work though. I know you can sing to cattle and calm them , and sometimes it works with deers also. We had a mean rooster when I was little and my granny use to go back after him with a broom, he was mean though , he would eat us up if he got the chance. When I was younger , I sang wildwood flower, while my grandfather played the mandolin. Such a awesome thing. Memories I will never forget.

What an amazing and sweet story, "trusted". And as usual, the daily inspirational stories from "Abeliever" were a boost! Hope everyone is having a brilliant evening!

And thanks AW for the advice on the R.V. purchase. I have a few more questions for you if you'll be around a bit later on tonight! Much appreciated!!

I'm waiting for Wilfred to come on. I love that show, too bad it's only a half hour sitcom, hehe.

SO: Chat in a bit! Hopefully someone will be on here to converse with!
