Thank you David!!

The poor birdies are having their battles with
man. We chop down trees like no tomorrow.
The birds need the trees to make their nests.

I feed the birds on my window sill......Poor little
things do not have the natural feeding elements
as they once did in a real forested area which now
is all covered up with tat & cement!

Plant & protect trees for life.........
