I do love my parrots, especially my African grey, yesterday I went to scratch his head and gave him one of those little electrical zaps after walking across the carpet, so he's been growling at me since, and yes, parrots can growl, quite loud too.
He gets upset when he sees bigger birds outside, but her does love to see the squirrels go by on the fence, sometimes he yells HELLO!!
We use to get alot of pretty neat birds in our yard, but, over the years the dogs have scared them off.

Has any one had problems with West Nile disease? My Cardinals, Blue Jays, Finches, Wrens, most Humming birds and blue birds have all but disappeared. Horses here were found dead untill they found the cause was West Nile.

Patch, yes, West Nile Virus has taken its toll in CT and the tri state NY, NJ and CT area. Between Eastern Equine Encephalitis and West Nile, each year we have had a few elderly deaths and a fair amount of birds. The last several years it did not appear to be as severe as say about 5 years ago , when the birds literally were dropping out of the sky. I have not noticed a decrease in the bird population the past few years. Most affected are the seagulls, crows and bluejays around here.

PS Saw 2 very big blue herons today flying low over the pond on the way to work, the little one was not in his usually morning spot today. I think the fisherman may be disturbing them or they are still on the move.

Yes, they tell us to bring birds in that we find dead also.

Turkey mating season is on now and just today I saw 3 different toms in 3 different places. They get very fiesty.

Little heron was back in the corner of the pond this morning and I saw one big heron on the wing over work this morning.

I haven't acctually seen much sign of the West Nile Virus around here although there was quite a buzz about it a few years ago. Today I saw a very gorgeous blue-jay it was just mulling about in the grass.
good topic guys

An immature bald eagle. If you look close, you can see the band on his leg.

A kingfisher, taking a break from fishing.
By the way, all these shots are from Ottawa National Wildlife Refuge; Crane Creek State Refuge; and Magee Marsh State Refuge; all right next to each other on Lake Erie.
I may post more later.

My Falcons are back and watching my feeders. They watch the feeders from the trees across the street. The seem to have developed a taste for Doves (ground feeding birds).

Hmm! It seems when I view this thread from my work pc, there are no photos displayed. Okay, that means I don't know what is going on here. So, just ignore my rantings...
