I'm not interested in birds as pets but I've always been interested in wild ones. Especially since my wife and I retired to South Carolina two years ago my interest in bird photography has grown, I lead a local bird watching group and I help develop software for several other local groups. Coastal SC is a haven particularly for shore birds and waders...
I love birds. They are fun to watch. And i can hear when the sparrows get in a fight because the chirpping gets much much louder !
not my video, but have a look.
Three's a Charm...
In England we call a collection of Goldfinches a 'charm'. Historically they have often become a target of bird trappers because of their bright colour and bubbly song - I have heard them singing from tiny cages on balconies in Mediterranean homes.
I prefer my birds to be outside. I saw this delightful little band feeding on fluffy thistle seedheads in a sheep field last week
We had parakeets when I was a kid. I've not had any since...my career moved me too often and it seemed "too hard". But, I do enjoy watching birds wherever I am...and it is almost time to put the feeders back out for my winter stay overs. I started keeping an informal log in late 2018 and have 43 species so far without even really trying hard.
Here's a bird person:
" Bird is the word!"
Used to be. Had 2 Nonday-Conures--over the years? Very messy and I kinda freaked about getting psitacosis with the crap particles flying in the air......so after they passed I haven't thought about having any more.........HOWEVER............an African Grey sure is tempting!
Not as pets, but the woods immediately behind my house is home to a family of red-tailed hawks. In addition to being beautiful to watch, they do a great job keeping rodents and snakes out of my yard.
Everyday I listen to the birds singing.
There’s nothing in this world that compares to the birds in the morning hours singing their songs.
I don’t think birds belong in cages, especially long lived parrots. It’s a shame, actually.
Wild birds are amazing. One of my best sightings was cedar waxwings while fly fishing at dusk.
We have a cockatoo. The wife has bird feeders all over the yard, so we watch all kinds of birds feeding. Very enjoyable to see their antics.
Had a budgie named Ouiga and another one one named Buddy. Also had a house full of hummingbirds for several seasons due to my girlfriend at the time working in a pet shop. Damaged or abandoned babies would come in due to an article they did on her in the local paper after her first rescue. It was deemed the earliest recorded birth of a hummer (early Feb) in AZ.
Hey...this is highly off topic for a guitar forum...but don't worry, I am here to help (and it's not even a prs)
Ah, zebra finches.
They're noisy...and messy. Is that bird poop to the left on an upper fret?
For the first time in several years past, our yard is home to a covey of quail. They're my favorite bird. I love their call, and all the clucking and chucking, those wiggly topknots, and the whirr of their wings when they fly. They live in the blackberry bushes but they come strut in the yard pretty often, with chicks timidly following after them.
I could easily become a birder/a.k.a. bird watcher.
There’s a great documentary on the birders of Central Park.
I could not become the captor of something that was meant to fly.
Sorry, that’s just not me.
I knew this bird. He was up at stony creek for years. Messed up wing – he was not going anywhere
He has since flown off to the paradise where his feet never touch the ground !
Long live crow !
I like birds. Have owned a few. None atm. I have rarely closed the door on em. Very social animals.
I had a two cocakatiels; one as a kid and one as an adult. Neither talked, but both cruised freely around the house.
During the time I had the second one I started feeling guilty about keeping a bird in a cage. They should be out flying around free IMO.
