I have feeders in my yard for these lovely creatures. Sadly, birds of every size and color are under threat today. Thank you Simone.

Wherever you are there once was a forest full of birds.
Plant & protect Danny's birds & trees for life.

Definitely a need for more attention to the plight of birds.

great ... nothing worse than a species meant to fly - to be in a prison ... in a cage

Birds should not be kept in captivity. Thanks to all who feed and enjoy the wild creatures. As with most horrible stuff, if we don't buy it the problem goes away. I feel much the same about the concentration camps we call zoos.
