I bought a bird feeder. I hung
it on my back porch and filled
it with seed. What a beauty of
a bird feeder it is, as I filled it
lovingly with seed. Within a
week we had hundreds of birds
taking advantage of the
continuous flow of free and
easily accessible food.

But then the birds started
building nests in the boards
of the patio, above the table,
and next to the barbecue.

Then came the poop. It was
everywhere: on the patio tile,
the chairs, the table ...

Then some of the birds
turned mean. They would
dive bomb me and try to
peck me even though I had
fed them out of my own

And others birds were
boisterous and loud. They
sat on the feeder and
squawked and screamed at
all hours of the day and night
and demanded that I fill it
when it got low on food.

After a while, I couldn't even
sit on my own back porch
anymore. So I took down the
bird feeder and in three days
the birds were gone. I cleaned
up their mess and took down
the many nests they had built
all over the patio.

Soon, the back yard was like
it used to be ... quiet, serene
and no one demanding their
rights to a free meal.

Now let's see ....
Our government gives out
free food, subsidized housing,
free medical care, and free
education and allows anyone
born here to be an automatic

Then the illegals came by the
tens of thousands. Suddenly
our taxes went up to pay for
free services; small apartments
are housing 5 families; you
have to wait 6 hours to be seen
by an emergency room doctor;
your child's 2nd grade class is
behind other schools because
over half the class doesn't speak

Corn Flakes now come in a
bilingual box; I have to
"press one" to hear my bank
talk to me in English, and
people waving flags other
than "Old Glory" are
squawking and screaming
in the streets, demanding
more rights and free liberties.

Just my opinion, but maybe
it's time for the government
to take down the bird feeder.
If you agree, pass it on; if not,
continue cleaning up the poop!


  1. Wow - I second that - but here it really isn't the immigrants - they work hard - it's the lazy ass Canadians who burn my butt

  2. Never thought about the snow birds doing that! Thanks for opening my eyes to Nawth of the Mason jar line!! ;-)


  3. It reminds me of that quote about the rose and the thorn. If you love birds, you're going to have to put up with their poop every now and then, I guess.

    I can't believe they got mean. I was picturing an Alfred Hitchcock movie for a minute there. The only time I felt really scared around birds was on Trafalgar Square in London where the whole square is filled with birds. When a car backfired, they immediately flew up. I couldn't see the sky because it was all birds, everywhere. Freaky.

    I'm glad all is quiet again with the occasional spider on your porch. When you see one, say hello...from your little friend.

    Thanks for the comments on my friendship post. You're gold.
