Vikings Stadium-Intentional Bird Murderer?

There is enough evidence from studies done all over the world that glass windows cause birds to fly on and to die.For years before the Vikings Stadi.was build, conservationists have warned and asked to use bitd friendly glass which was denied for not sane reasons.

There is however still time as there are other ways to deter birds from flying into the glass.

Maltese Bird Killers should look for a new hobby


Please read through all 3 links: 
Maltese bird trappers should look for another hobby: CABS has praised the European Commission for its efforts to take Malta to the European Court of Justice (ECJ) over its controversial decision to allow finch trapping. In a press release the NGO accused the Maltese government of painting a false picture by describing the trapping season as “well controlled”. “According to our observations the opposite is the case with massive illegal trapping and a total lack of enforcement in spring, hundreds of trapping stations built in protected areas  and rampant illegal trade and smuggling of many thousand of birds each year. Above all, allowing finch trapping is a clear breach of the European Bird´s Directive and Malta´s accession treaty to the European Union.  Instead of wasting Maltese taxpayers money to defend the indefensible Mr. Galdes should have the guts to honestly tell the trappers that their cause is lost and that they should look for another hobby”, CABS president Heinz Schwarze said.

The ECJ has opened the case against Malta over illegal finch trapping today (15 February 2017) . A decision is expected to be announced later this year.

Another Victim of Human Unconsciousness

“I adore my rescued indoor felines. But, please help me write an epitaph suitable for this Eastern Bluebird brought into the center today. He had been out foraging when he sustained serious injuries from a cat. Though he is but a single soul lost in the millions of native species killed by outdoor cats each year, I suspect his  life is a precious to him as ours is to each of us.  A recent study shows 70% of birds and 80% mammals die from cat attacks. Domestic  cats are bred to be our companions. In that sense, they are not ‘natural’ to the ecosystem; at least they weren’t, until we humans introduced them. Their use as rodent control is no longer needed. Many believe a domestic cat may only kill weak animals that were going to die. If that was true, then they just culled a meal from a natural predator causing further problems in the ecosystem. Wildlife such as Bobcats, Cougars and Mountain Lions  kill to sustain life unless provoked to defend their territory. Our wildlife and environment desperately need our help, as do our pets. Household cats allowed outside have more diseases, injuries, and a shorter life span than those kept inside. We cannot save every life but we can certainly start by first keeping household cats inside, away from harm and wildlife. Our daily actions are

mirrored back to us. Wildlife is necessary for our long term existence. Become a steward of wildlife.”

Thanks to pet bird keepers the Yellow Crested Cockatoo is now critically endangered. ..

Says it all doesn’t it?!

As long as pet bird keepers who keep ir want these birds in a cage or aviary in their house to satisfy their selfish ego as long as these birds will run towards extinction.

To keep these birds (unless they are from a rescue center) is unconscious and stupid.To keep them or to want one is living in denial to realize that it is cruel towards the animal but also a crime against nature….

“The yellow-crested cockatoo is now critically endangered. It doesn’t have much time left.

But why are these protected cockatoos coveted?

Apparently these friendly birds make good pets; they are able to imitate human speech and can be trained to learn certain behaviours.”

Pesticides kill Birds and other Wildlife

It’s frightening how stupid and uneducated people still are in regards to pesticides :(.But this stupidities explain parts of why nature has and is being destructed on such a large scale.)

This is a article from Audubon Society of Rhode Island

http://www.asri.org/

So, I was checking my voicemail this morning and there was one from a caller who said that she had her trees sprayed for caterpillars – trees occupied by three bird feeders – and now, she is upset that there are no birds at all for her to watch. She wonders if the spray could possibly have something to do with it. (Yes, spraying pesticides on your trees will have an effect on the songbirds.) It is not uncommon for us to get inquiries such as these, and it is with great frustration and sadness that we often are faced with educating people after the damage has been done. So, please let me take a moment to reach out to our Facebook friends and family and be proactive about this topic. All pesticides are designed to kill. Some are very targeted, such as B. T. (Bacillus thuringiensis) which primarily affects Lepidopterans (moths and butterflies), but most pesticides are broad and indiscriminate. When you make the choice to treat your house or landscape with rodenticides or grub treatment or mosquito foggers or any other pesticide treatment, you have an intent of ridding yourself of a specific creature that you find distasteful. However, nothing in nature exists in a vacuum. Everything is connected. When you affect one population, it has a ripple effect across the populations that depend upon and coexist with it. When you spray insecticide, for instance, it does not just kill the ‘bugs’ you don’t like, but kills all insects, including honeybees, butterflies and ladybugs. Likewise, when you spray, the insects do not simply disappear off the face of the earth. Many live a short time before they perish. In this time, they may be consumed by natural predators, like songbirds, small mammals and other insects. Pesticides may have a direct toxicity to these animals or may build up in their fat or blood and cause illness or death over time. Even so-called “green” chemicals are still intended to kill, and though they may be derived from natural sources or biodegrade quickly, they are still highly toxic to you and other organisms.

Friends, it is so very important in this day and age, with the steady decline of bird populations and the utter devastation of pollinator populations that we humans take a serious, proactive look at the choices we make and the practices we support – either directly or indirectly. It is vital that we do not go blindly into the world, but make ourselves informed and educated about products and practices and about science, industry and nature. Here at the Audubon Society of Rhode Island, we very much want to help people become educated and able to make informed choices. We are here to answer your questions and point you in the direction of reliable and scientifically accurate information. But we also encourage you to think and question BEFORE you act. Your actions have consequences. Thanks for listening!

‘And now I need to use my bone grinder…’

And now I need to use my bone grinder…

“What happened?

Ignorance……

In 1350, the human population was near 370 Million (!!! )

It exceeded 7 BILLION in 2012…(!!! ).The estimation is 9.6 BILLION by 2050 (!!!).

They ignored that with more people came also more (unnecessary) food demands, like sea food.

•And bird population decreased as humans over fished and less food was left for the sea birds. ..

They ignored that everything on earth must be respected and honored and polluted the waters with their waste and toxins. ..

•And bird populations decreases as they died of their waste or reduced their offspring as there was not enough food left as it had died from pollution toxins…

They ignored that with more food demand came a higher demand on farming -leading farmers to farm the easy way and to use pesticides …

•And bird populations decreased by dying from the toxins as they ate the poisoned insects, mammals and intoxicated fruit, berries and plants…

They ignored that with more people came more pet cats which are non native predatory animals in nearly every country around the world leading to a increase of wild bird killing…

•And bird population decreased because the spoiled and over bred pet was let outside by ignorant cat keepers and killed the adult birds of shorebirds and ground breeding birds (in particular ) and chicks…Plus they took not fast enough action to remove the cats who had no owner (so called feral. ).

They ignored that other non native animal species that they have brought to their countries can destroy biodoversity and kill native species. .

• And the bird population decreased and even extincted many bird species, because the introduced non native animals, killed many of their native species…

They ignored that most exotic birds that they wanted to keep as pets in a small cage needed to be caught in the wild or taken from their nests and smuggled into other countries. And 90%of the caught birds die/d before their final destination…

•And bird populations decreased as far too many needed to be caught to ensure that a few will get to their destination alive. Many bird species got disturbed when their eggs or chicks were taken and stopped breeding. Some couldn’t recover their own numbers as they only laid a very few eggs but always more were taken. And often the parent birds killed during the raid…

They ignored that with more people came a higher demand on high quality wood for their fancy products such as furniture, floors and ornaments (to name a few) leading to deforestation. And they also ignored that the more needed farming, space for living and entertainment also helped to speed up deforestation and the loss of wetlands and open planes…

•And bird population decreased as the birds lost the habitats that they had been using for breeding for thousand of years…Plus with trees their shelters and food sources diminshed…

They ignored that windfarms and solar pannel farms increased bird death’ and that individual and correct solar panels and generators would ‘not’ kill the birds…

•And the bird population decreased as they got slaughtered by the blades or tunnels and burnt to death by the solar farms and cheap pannels and/or wrong generators…

They ignored that fireworks cause stress and night fright on birds and other wildlife due the loud noise and flashing lights and sometimes cause fire…

•And the bird population decreased as thousands per year died for the sake of fun and commercial income…

They ignored that with more people came more bird hunters who were hunting endangered species, rodent regulating raptor birds and song birds…

•And the bird population decreased as more birds were being slaughtered unnecessarily…

They ignored that with more people came more poachers who trapped birds for unnecessary food and more people who ate more birds unnecessary- in particular song birds as a tradition or gourmet meal…

•And the birds decreased in population as they were caught and eaten without the need to eat them. Other to satisfy the tongue…

All the information was there and many took passionate tasks to warn everybody, but they were ignored by the unconscious mass…Each factor added to the extinction of birds but each of the unconscious individual human being ignored it…

And with birds declining in large numbers, there were no birds left to pollinate and distribute seeds for trees,bushes and other plants…

And no birds to regulate the rodent and insect population- so pesticides was all that was left….

But some insects became resitant as there were many in species…

But the single species human being had killed themselves by killing the birds, increasing the pesticides and by eating the only food that was left which was GMO as that kills the insects but makes the human sick and infertile or kills them….

And now I need to use my bone grinder. ..”

Do not let this happen. ACT NOW!

Every individual has responsibilities to protect nature in any way they can no matter how small or big the action is.

PS This is only a summarization of the major threats.

Let’s trust in a more postive future with more people on this planet realising and becoming aware ‘AND’ taking action that we are killing off all the creatures who this planet truly belongs too as they have each a important function in the cycle of nature which creates our food, oxygen and drinking water.

Earth with ‘all’ it’s creatures on it, is essential for the existence of humans and the only place humans can live.
