Ligno Pro Urbana Aves
Urban birds sure do get the treatment; and birds in the ‘burbs – they live the luxe life. Free food and water, a house, and even a place to bathe? What more could they ask for?
We spend the time and money to give our backyard birds every modern convenience.
Maybe it’s because we are ‘nature-lovers’ and just like seeing them around. Maybe we do it to keep up with the Joneses. Maybe, deep down, we feel bad for spoiling their natural habitat, and feel the need to replace it with something we would like if we were a bird.
Whatever the answer may be, what are we doing to the birds? Have we decreased their bird IQ? Do they still know how to be a bird in the wild? Are they even real birds anymore?
